question about unison

hey there, i have been using unison for a while. i have a cron job that does a backup for me on a shared folder

like this
unison -batch /home/me /backup/me

now, the way unison works, it propagates changes from either side. is there a way i can disable it so that if something changes in the /backup directory, it is not copied over to the /home directory ? Basically, i need an option to have unison only make any changes or updates in one direction. Or should i use a different program ?

Check the manual:

and take a look at the "force" option. That might work.
