tar cvzpfP /media/sda1/spb/20031105.tar.gz /home
The above TAR command works fine however when you try to look in the zipped tar, it is very slow........ok so it well over 100 megs.
I read an article about rsync, very clever stuff.
When I try to use rsync on my Kmail folders the Mail folders are copied, but their contents NOT!
My line to try out rsync is this:
rsync -vrlpR /home/spb/Mail _/media/sda1/Mail
rsync -vrlpR /home/spb/Mail/ _/media/sda1/Mail
Note the trailing slash on the source directory. Without it, rsync syncs the directory, but not the contents.
