How to use 'cp' as a simple but reliable backup tool
Authored by: Reaperducer on Feb 25, '10 08:01:08AM

Actually, rsync will fail if it hits certain types of files. For example, it can't backup a local iDisk volume because it can't cope with the symbolic links. I'm going to try the cp method the author suggests and hope it works better than rsync.
