I want to make a backup of a directory that contains thousands of sub-directories and deep sub-folder paths. In many of these directories there are a big number of files starting with
.. I want to make sure that all of the
. files in sub-directories and sub-sub-directories and etc. get properly copied. Is it enough to specify
include="*"? Will this cover everything?
rsync -rvh --compress-level=0 --stats --progress --include ".*" user@vm:/mnt/storage8/backups ~/data/backup_of_backups/
