Replicate Filesystem with Rsync
Quick note on using rsync(1) to move data from one place to another. For some reasons, I am moving my backup storage volume from one place to another. It is quite big and it takes more than 24H to copy. And as I don’t want to stop running the backup in the meantime, I have to be able to resynchronize the whole set of data several times. So I decided to use rsync(1).
