Rsync Info


I was wondering if anyone could recommend a book, website or have any documentation of there own they could send me on setting up rsync

I will admit what i have found on the web so far confusing I need something from the ground up. I understand what rsync is used for but need something a bit more basic to what I have found so far.

Thanks in advance for any advice

If you want to backup a directory or file type something like this in a command line:
rsync -arvuz /home/usr/MyDocuments /media/Temp/Backup
You can easily make a script by putting that line in a text file and renaming the extension to .sh to run it you type
Here's a simple tutorial on rsync
