    Rsync problem?
    Hi guys,

    I setup rsync with ssh (password less) to backup from my computer tiger to Leopard, but it seems don't back up any thing.

    Code:
    administrators-MyMac:~ root# rsync -r -e ssh /Volumes/G5/Users/apple2/Desktop/* root@192.168.1.10:/Volumes/Server\ HD/Users/apple2/Desktop
    administrators-MyMac:~ root#
    It seems working but when i check folder 'Users/apple2/Desktop' in server 192.168.1.10, then there is not thing in there.

    Any suggestion ? Thanks

    have you tried RsyncX.app

    Its a GUI for that terminal command, much easier to set up and use

    The way I do it is mount the other Mac on your desktop. Then rsync as if both folders were local. With....
    rsync -av --stats --delete --delete-after /FROM-FOLDER/PATH /TO-FOLDER/PATH > ~/Desktop/sync.log
