    Rsync question


    Hi All,

    I'm trying to setup my rsync correctly and am finding that it's not working like I need it to. The first thing I'm trying to sync is music, the original sync works fine but then I'm doing some tests and the next sync doesn't send the updated file:

    a) changing genre with easy tag, interesting thing is that the mod date doesn't change when I do this. But ultimately a true sync should sync this if the file has changes unless I'm mistaken....

    b) when I do a touch on the file, it still doesn't send the file to updated version

    here is what I'm running
    rsync -ave ssh Music/2PAC sam@110.140.1.10:/data/Music

    also tried the same thing with -c included (checksum), no difference.

    Basically is there no way for me to ensure a true sync?

    Appreciate it

    I don't see a problem in your command, but I have one question.

    Did you try using the rsync server feature ? and issuing a command like
    Code:
    rsync -av Music/2PAC rsync://110.140.1.10/Music
    after installing rsync serveur and declaring the share on 110.140.1.10

    It actually did work, just had to be patient and allow it to send a full list....thanks for the input though
