I've been searching for information on how to use rsync correctly, but there are a few different ways when it comes to its parameters.
I want to use rsync and have the same result as I would if I simply used Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V on Nautilus. I've read its help contents and tried the following command:
So, "r" for recursive (subfolders and files as well) and "v" for verbose (I want to see what's going on). Cool. But I have seen a lot of people suggesting the use of "a" for archive as well. Is that really necessary?Code:rsync -rv /path/source/ /path/target/
Anyway, as I said, I want exactly the same as copy/paste, so maybe my command lacks parameters, I don't know. What do you say?
Thanks in advance.
