tor. It works for a while, then it drops the connection. That in itself is not a big problem and I suppose it is not entirely unexpected when running long sessions over
tor that takes many minutes to complete.
When I restart
rsync it goes through the files in the same order as last time. That is a problem because some of these files change often (think of /var/spool of a busy mail server and you get the idea). This means that the files it gets to first get updated often, while files it never gets around to are never transferred.
What I would prefer is to have
rsync either continue where it left off or at least transfer the files in random order.
Is there a general way of doing that?
