10.4: Avoid rsync errors during backup due to Spotlight
Authored by: mstoops on Nov 11, '05 06:45:10AM

I just tried this in 10.4.3:

$ rsync -av ~/bin /tmp

It seems to have preserved everything just fine.

...and I just tried it across to a linux server. That too seems to have worked just fine, preserving date stamps (as well as a soft-link or two).

Yes, if you omit the -E option, it works great. Include the -E option to see what I'm talking about.

I.e. try

rsync -avE ~/bin /tmp
