    Program To Synchronize Two Directories


    Hi there guys,

    I need to find a tool to keep two directories with exactly the same content.
    I want to start it manually.

    I don't want a conventional backup tool for compressing my data files, I want to keep files in your normal form.

    I know I could use "cp -R dirA dirB" but it don't remove dirA excluded files in dirB.

    I was going to write a script for this, but I belive it there must be yet.

    Thanks in advance

    rsync can do what you want.

    Code:
    man rsync
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.
