10.4: Avoid rsync errors during backup due to Spotlight
Authored by: murali1080 on Nov 09, '05 01:05:58PM

Good hint, though I haven't had this problem. I have disabled indexing on my backup volume totally and permanently, anyway.

Also try rdiff-backup. Its in someways better and more mature than rsnapshot. The stable version is comparable to professional backup tools. I also like rsnapshot but do not use it anymore.
