I am using rsync to backup my website files, using --link-dest to copy from the previous rsync backup.
rsync -zavx -e 'ssh -p22' \ --numeric-ids \ --delete -r \ --link-dest=../"$latest_backup" "$rhost:$rhost_source" "$local_dest";
I have noticed that files with non-ascii characters look to have had their characters converted, so the rsync is deleting them and then re-downloading them.
Here is an example:
deleting public_html/images/made/96096a4645d59a3e/Moulin_a?\#200_vent_Bourgogne_DBW1901_680_680_s_c1.jpg public_html/images/made/96096a4645d59a3e/Moulin_à_vent_Bourgogne_DBW1901_1200_801_80.jpg
Is it possible to stop rsync from converting the characters?
