How to use 'cp' as a simple but reliable backup tool
Authored by: Han Solo on Feb 20, '10 02:13:02PM
Could you please post as a hint your rsync solution to reconciling iTunes Libraries? It would be useful to know if you are, in fact, reconciling the songs/playcounts/ratings/playlists/etc. across multiple computers, or merely synchronizing the contents of the "iTunes Music" folders. In other words, suppose the metadata for song #1 was changed on computer A and for song #2 on computer B. Would your rsync command reflect those changes on both computers?

It also would be useful to know both the version of iTunes you are using and the version of rsync. Thanks!
