A common tasks I teach new users in UNIX is how to make backups. Since most are not comfortable with the command line (CLI) and I want to have them make backups (more than forcing them to use the CLI), right now I teach them to drag and drop whole directories around.
The problem with that, of course, is that it takes a long time, as all files are copied every time.
I would prefer it if file managers would fire up
rsync instead of
cp -a when you copy over an existing directory. Is there a plugin for that? Anyone working on such functionality in a file manager already?
