I am trying to backup my /home directory. A friend helped me with this
#"Spinning up backup drive and mounting it .."
#"Starting backup procedures"
rsync -avx --exclude="/home/gary/.thumbnails/"
--exclude="/home/gary/tmp/" --delete --ignore-errors /home/gary
It backs up /home OK. However it does not exclude .thumbnails or tmp. I
have read the manual and am confused on the use of --exclude. I am
strictly a user. I am using rsync supplied by ML2010.
Help would be greatly appreciated.
More information about the rsync
