    Some people hate this kind of answer:

  12. [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu 21.04. How do I check an rsync backup set?

    Rsync copies files. It ensures that a file was copied correctly using a CRC. That is all it does.

    If you want to check a file, go there with a file browser and open it.

    Re: sane.d scanner and pdf size

    Howdy,
    You can resample and resize PDFs with Imagemagick “convert”. For example change it to 300 dpi and BW for small file size. Some googling for examples with convert will get you going.
