Seems to work when I tried it. Is the directory listed when you run
it? What does --itemize-changes say?
My first guess is that it would be an interaction between --checksum
and --ignore-times which are fairly opposite functions and --checksum
is usually the wrong thing to use.
Also btw, you don't need -p -R or -e "ssh".
Also, use ./ instead of ./* This wouldn't affect your current command
but it would if you were using --delete so I consider it a bad habit.
