I'm using Rsync to move files from a remote computer (running the rsync daemon), but I need to have everything, files and folders, on the sender be removed if the transfer was successful. This is the command I'm using:
rsync -rlpEthSWog --progress --stats --update --remove-source-files --password-file=/server/rsync-batchpass rsync://firstname.lastname@example.org/outbox/ /server/raid/inbox/
It seems like other people have had issues with rsync only deleting files in my Google searches, but the solution they found was to run "rm -fr ./" on the source directory. In my case that's not an option since I don't have access to a shell on the sender.
Anyone have any ideas?
