Use psync to create incremental backups
Authored by: bluehz on May 08, '03 09:10:11AM

I often see failures - specifically with Application bundles while
using Psync, RsyncX, and CarbonCopyCloner. As far as I am
concerned this is a MAJOR FALURE. For one thing - most times
you are not even given an sort of failure notice, and only find
out about the failure when you try to launch the Application. I
admit that in a recent repartition and reload of a 20G disk
packed with applications - using CarbonCopy Cloner - I Have
only run into 2 applications so far that I have had to reinstall.....
BUT the operative word here is " far". Since I have yet to
launch EVERY app I copied - I don't know what the future holds.
As far as I am concerned ANY methodology used for bakup/
cloning is NO GOOD unless it can perform 100% accurate
backups OR at least notify you of which files have failed.
