comment Using Grub to select boot drive?
I don't want to boot from the added drive. It just happened to have Ubuntu on it, and to my surprise booting started from that drive and not the existing drive with Lubuntu. If I disconnect the added drive all is well and Lubuntu boots up.

Would it be possible, if I enter into Grub commandline, to point to the Lubuntu disk instead ?

comment Using Grub to select boot drive?
Thanks for explaining what's going on ! The problem is that the added Ubuntu drive does not fully boot. It first displays the Grub option , press Esc to enter Grub, then the Ubuntu logo with progressbar, then the screen goes black and is unusable.

I find rsync documentation confusing and contradictory, so I'm asking for the correct options to, on a daily basis syncing two folders, that handles file modifications, new files, renames, deletes, in a sane way.

yadayada.txt has u:rw g:rw o:r and is a multiline file. sample content: === rsync start === 2013-08-07 20:58:01 === rsync stop === 2013-08-07 21:00:50
