Ok. I made some further research and it seems I misconceptioned the flag. It does what I want.

@RolandSmith Is --delete really the right thing/flag? I mean: delete extraneous files from destination dirs I do not want to delete anything from the destination!

Would -r (-rh --progress in my case) work?

@RolandSmith What flags do i have to use if I want to delete files that no longer exist? Meaning what flags do I have to set in order to make the temp directory an exact copy of the main directory without copying and deleting unecessary files?

It seems like you are not getting my problem. I know how to estimate remaing time. But I do not know how to output on the same line over and over again! This is the major problem. The estimation of the actual compression is pretty much irrelevant. I was just curious if somebody had an simple solution.

The compression is totally worth it. Since I have super slow internet (1GB download takes about an hour) every 1GB I get is worth 50 minutes more compressing! The server won't lag to hard. (I have tried it. It seems like there is enough compution power to to this or the compressing is on another core). I forgot to mention that a sleep of 1 to 10 secs should also be added to the loop. And the only thing that gets dued in the loop is the archive. This is done almost instantly.

I don't need it. I just think this is a nice feature to know how long operations approximately will take. And as I said, I could easily live without it.

comment rm -rf does not delete folder contents but instead creates another empty one
I double checked it. And it looks like I forgot the *. Now it works. Also thank you for the expanded answer!

The weird thing about this is that now the folder is not created! (I changed the script according to the solution.)
