    Exclamation rsync prob

    Ok I'm missing something simple.
    (mac OSX 10.6.8 if that matters)

    When I run this, it creates a sub folder (popbox/popbox) on the destination. How do it o it to just the top 'popbox' folder (the source is from my home folder, the destination is a second level folder on the root of a NAS.

    rsync -r -u -p -E ~/popbox /Volumes/open/
    (-r is recursive, -u is update, -p is preserve permissions, and -E is preserve executable on the Mac)

    (And just a quick newbie Q, it should make both source and dest folders identical, no?)


    EDIT: Nevermind, found the prob, adding a '/' to the source.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    Glad you sorted this out. Please show your new rsync command w/ options so others can learn from your travails! Thanks.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
