How to use 'cp' as a simple but reliable backup tool
Authored by: zkarj on Feb 18, '10 12:59:34AM

A further, and probably final comment. After re-reading most of the comments I feel I've learnt a lot more about rsync. But please note this.

While most of the offered rsync solutions will do the job, there are several different variations to the options and even two different versions of rsync itself, offering further variations. rsync has a whopping 106 options on it on the version I have (the built in), probably substantially more in the newer version.

I assume cp has been around with most of its 11 options since time immemorial and I doubt (though I don't know for fact) that there are different flavours of it. I stand by my claim that I chose the simple option.

That said, now that I am beginning to understand rsync, I see a future for it on my system.
