I would like to use rsync to backup my Mac to a network drive, and am
hoping someone on the list can help straighten me out.
Since the network drive can't run any programs, I am first mounting
the drive onto the Mac via SMB as /Volumes/backup. When I run:
rsync -av --delete --no-whole-file --progress /Users/bob/Documents /
everything seems to copy successfully. However, if I immediately run
the command again, it copies everything again, instead of doing an
incremental backup. How do I get rsync to do incremental backups?
