Rsync: exclude and include filters?
Is there a way to rsync only some of the .(hidden files)?
I tried, but couldn't figure it out, and was wondering if this was possible. I want to back up some of my /home/joe/ directories as well as a few of the . files and directories, but not all.

Read the man file for rsync,


% man rsync
And look specifically for these two options:

skip creating new files on receiver

Copy the files you want manually, then on the next runs rsync will copy those files only.

read list of source-file names from FILE

Using this option allows you to specify the exact list of files to transfer (as read from the specified FILE or - for standard input). It also tweaks the default behavior of rsync to make transferring just the specified files and directories easier:

etc. etc.

Read the man page.
