bah. use rsync.
Authored by: rflo on Jun 28, '05 10:41:26AM

The problem with rsync as a backup tool under MacOS 10.4 is that without the -E option, resource forks are not backed-up. And with the -E option, the MacOS 10.4 rsync sets the file date/time to the present -- which isn't what you want on a backup.

It should be more useful when Apple fixes it, perhaps in 10.4.2.
