I understand that rsync is very versatile, so I'm just wondering what the best way to use it would be in my situation ... which is:
~700GB project (in a single folder
project/ with various sub-directories) on a workstation which I SSH into to do processing and analysis. This work station mounts an NFS share which I don't have direct access to. Is it possible to use the delta functionality of rsync to make incremental backups of the project?
I am already using rsnapshot to backup but I am hoping there is a simple command with rsync that will allow me to delta copy the project over. It changes very little, so the delta copy would really cut down on bandwidth.
I have tried
$ rsync --no-whole-file -rv project/ /nfs/destination/project/
But this did not work... I have a feeling I am not using it correctly.
