How to use 'cp' as a simple but reliable backup tool
Authored by: osxpounder on Feb 20, '10 12:55:41PM

I've read this hint and comments with interest, and I appreciate the effort our original poster, and our commenters, have put into them.

There's so much detail that I wish for an article that summarizes one or two good solutions, with explanations that nail down a good practice for Mac OSX users. It's great to learn about options that a macports user can install, to be sure. I'd like to know about the cp or rsync options I should use on an unaltered installation of Leopard or Snow Leopard. I come away from this hint & comments feeling a bit overwhelmed by the debates and options.
