I have a server with 30gb of content on. It runs Centos. anyone got any tips on running rsync to sync it to a hard drive (on my local machine)?
Is there any way to use rsync but also have 'version history' of the files?
also I am doing this command
rsync -avz -e ssh user@hostname:/from/directory/on/remote/ /tmp/to/dir/on/local/
but when i cd /tmp/to/dir/on/local and do ls -lah it hasn't kept the file owner (the file owner is my own user on this local machine) . i am running OS X
