i am trying to backup some data to another dir with rsync
the command i use is:
rsync -grP --delete /mnt/hd/current /mnt/hd/backups
'current' is a huge folder (140GB). to be backing it up everynight...
however i read in the rsync manual that only the differences are being copied.
however it still seems to be taking ages to complete the rsync - just like the 1st time even though i haven't altered the contents of the dir at all in the mean time...
also the progress does show that things are being copied around
9174207 100% 7.80MB/s 0:00:01 (xfer#27999, to-check=0/32361)
sent 128688050892 bytes received 642170 bytes 23957682.78 bytes/sec
total size is 128670181617 speedup is 1.00
am i missing something?
