Using rsync for backup and restore

You are here:
< All Topics

To synchronize 2 volumes with rsync and also delete the files from the destination backup or second volume which do not exist on the source master or first volume, use the following rsync command:



rsync -avh <source master volume>  <destination backup volume>  --delete --ignore-errors



for example:



rsync -avh /media/kevin/GEMINI/DATAVOLUME/ /media/kevin/DATAVOLUMELUKS/ --delete --ignore-errors



Its important to include the



directive, else the deletion will fail!
