Are you using the -u flag to avoid the WebDAV file modify time problem?
Authored by: rodneyweston on Jul 23, '08 09:18:07AM

When I load files to iDisk, the file modification date always changes to the time of the upload, rather than the true modify time of the file. This is a real nuisance and reduces the value of iDisk as a backup.

With a -u flag, you are telling rsync to not update files on the destination that have a modified date later than the source. That is fair enough as the files on the destination will always have a modify date greater than the source, unless the source was modified after the last upload....

Have I got this right?
