rsync -av --del ~/ /media/m/USB\ Stick/kopia/rsynclinux/
For reasons unknown I was living in a false impression that once I remove a file from home directory in source the file would be removed in destination as well.
I had to reinstall and restore the backup... only to find how wrong I was. I now have an incredible mess of obsolete & duplicated files!!
Well I won't travel back to the past to make a proper backup, instead I'm stuck with slowly, ardously bringing order to my old notes.
But at least I want to avoid such mistakes in the future. Why does this call to
rsync fail to delete files?
Note I read this: rsync doesn't delete files in destination directory But as U can see my call to
rsync does not include a wildcard so the two problems are not the same
