HOWTO index

rsync is a very powerful program, but it contains a maze of twisty little options, all different, and sometimes I find I've messed things up long after it happened. I'm writing down typical incantations here.

Cloning file systems

cd oldfs
rsync -Havx * /newfs >/tmp/foo

Don't use -L here; it will create additional files from symlinks.
