Use psync to create incremental backups
Authored by: srteresi on Oct 21, '03 07:21:34PM

Beware... psync doesn't appear to copy Finder comments (that's text you may have pasted into the comments field of a file's Get Info box). I have extensive information stored in Finder comments and hence can't use psync.

Does anyone know of a synchronization program which will preserve file comments, permissions, modification dates (created/modified/accessed), and all such file metadata? I bet one doesn't yet exist! This page lists some options, but none appear comprehensive:
