A large amount of data was transferred from one NAS to a new NAS via windows explorer because of speed considerations. An attempt to use rsync was half-successful and restored the dates of files, but not the folders.
rsync -ax --size-only --progress email@example.com:/shares/Public/Drivers /shares/Public
I was advised that adding -v to the statement and this link would help explain why it was not changed. My attempt to decode was not successful.
The request is for a command line example (similar to above) that will sync the files and folder meta-data. Looking forward to clever responses and a good narrative.
