Why thank you.
Having dug around a bit more there are a couple of specific issues with my set up on this
1) Can I use the -a
flag over an smb mount? My gut says not...
2) I seem to have a problem in my current code:
rsync -b --backup-dir=/mnt/backup/$BACKUPDIR -rv test/ /mnt/backup/test/
$BACKUPDIR is set as
After running the command I get a folder called test on /mnt/backup and a dated folder on /mnt/backup - both containing exactly the same files - even if the files in ~/test/ haven't changed.
Is this because I'm not using the --delete option?
