just use psync
Authored by: jt777 on May 24, '06 01:08:44PM

I gave up on rsync a while ago. Besides the resource fork issue, it was just flakey at the time. Then I found psync. There is a GUI client made by someone called PsyncX which uses the command line psync. Psync is perfect. Just do: sudo psync source destination.

There are more options. Check out the GUI, do a man psync, etc. Just grab PsyncX, which will also install psync, and go from there.

No, psync isn't perfect and Carbon Copy Cloner inherits its weaknesses when it uses it. See "The State of Backup and Cloning Tools under Mac OS X" article germ linked to for more information.
