I've been trying to use "--checksum-seed" to speed up backups . I have a
homebrew script which creates incremental backups using hardlinks. To save
disk space I turn on --checksum so that when file's mod-times change rsync
doesn't create a new file (breaking the hardlinking) unless the contents of
the file are different as well.
I tested the command:
#rsync -aHiy -r --delete --ignore-errors --checksum --checksum-seed=1 fromdir
but I couldn't find where the checksums were being cached.
How does one use --checksum-seed ?
