I guess the capacity of the transport drive is way lower than the whole
Then the option is:
But as far as i understand it, you need a second (in this case local)
rsync-target that MUST be in sync with the remote server, before doing
the batch, so you can create the batch-file against it. Then you
transport the batch-file and last but not least apply it to the target
Then comes the next day and you are back at square 1. :-)
But if you can tell more about the data and how it changes, there maybe
better(tm) ways to transfer them, especially when you have a "disaster"
Real Programmers consider "what you see is what you get" to be just as
bad a concept in Text Editors as it is in women. No, the Real Programmer
wants a "you asked for it, you got it" text editor -- complicated,
cryptic, powerful, unforgiving, dangerous.
