10.4: Avoid rsync errors during backup due to Spotlight

FWIW, the -E flag and "extended attributes" refers to metadata, not necessarily resource forks.

10.4: Avoid rsync errors during backup due to Spotlight
Authored by: macshome on Nov 10, '05 01:15:53PM

Hi Dan,

From the man page.
<snip>
-E, --extended-attributes
Apple specific option to copy extended attributes, resource
forks, and ACLs. Requires at least Mac OS X 10.4 or suitably
patched rsync.

Looks like forks to me.
