I am trying to rsync a very large filesystem which is about 3TB, but
naturally I want to exclude a lot of things. However, I am really
struggling with excluding directories.
SRC=/dasd/december/2008 #Notice there is no trailing slash
TARGET=/backup/december/2008 #Notice there is no trailing slash
I want to exclude
#NOTICE: I added a trailing slash for $SRC but nothing for $TARGET
rsync --exclude Data/** --exclude Catalogs/** --exclude Logs/**
--numeric-ids --archive --delete --delete-excluded --human-readable
--stats --verbose --progress $SRC/ $TARGET.0
For some reason Data Logs and Catalogs are still being synced.
BTW, I am using the hardlink method to keep snapshots. So before the
rsync I am cp -al from 0 to 1 and removing the oldest
