rsync -avhP --ignore-existing /source /Destination
rsync -avhP /mnt/TempSeagate/Jim1 /mnt/fourTB_RaidZ/Jim/
rysync options explained
a= recursive, copy links, preserve permissions,preserve modification time,preserve group, preserve owner, preserve Device files
v= verbose output
h= human readable
P= keep partially transfered files and show progress
#note that using the
-z option to compress may be useful to limit bandwidth over a network, however if using rsync from one dir to another on the same local host, z is uneeded and will slow down the transfer speed to compress the dataz.
Perhaps, helpful? It is what I use but I have to do it one command process at a time. You can line up a bunch in chron jobs if you want. Fire them off a few seconds apart. Someone correct me if I am wrong? Rsync can run multiple insistence? I now I am doing that on FreeBSD server.
Fedora is my daily workstation workhorse. Thanks to any community devs reading this post.
