I need to sync SRC to DST, but:
- not based on file modification times
- and not based on filesize
+ but on filename. Ie if this is current state, then sync:
but not if /DST contains newer directory (by name, not by modification time)
so, imagine i have this:
if /SRC/1980-01-01 has newer modification time than /DST/2023-08-21,
then rsync -r --delete /SRC /DST will overwrirte 2023-08-21 with
1980-01-01. which is not what I want.
I only need to overwrite if source is "newer" in sense of "date filename"
is this possible with rsync ?
