How did you think it would work?
I use it and will describe what it does w/my example:
I'm using: (according to ps)
/usr/bin/rsync --archive --human-readable --acls --xattrs --hard-links
--no-inc-recursive --prune-empty-dirs --whole-file --one-file-system
This takes yesturdays snapshot and compares it to today file system
(compare-dest=/home) and puts the differences (the files
I would need to bring "dest" "up to date", onto /home.diff (or your usb drive)...
Since I'm running the above on a single machine there is no network so I use
whole-file and no-inc-recursive.
Is that what you were wanting? Sometimes it's a matter of figuring out, in to
which slot, each of the compared
items go into...
