I occasionally make changes to my
rsnapshot.conf and I'm wondering if there's any way I can do a test run that is sync-ed to a location other than the normal flow... something that's not an
interval. Is this possible? how?
I don't have an
rsnapshot setup to test this on. Be careful.
Personally, I think that the best thing to do is to carefully evaluate the output of
rsnapshot -t interval. However if you want to actually move files, one way to do it might be to create an alternate config file that is identical to your real config file but with a different
snapshot_root such as:
And then you can run your test using
rsnapshot -c rsnapshot.test.conf interval0
interval0 is your lowest order interval.
