Re: How to synchronize a networked drive and an external drive (Ubuntu & OS X)?
Thanks for the quick reply MrEgg.
For clarification purposes first:
- The external HDD is currently attached to the MacBook. So it looks something like this: Ubuntu --> MacBook --> external HDD.
- You're correct that I wish to rsync the server to the external HDD, and that I can manually handle the MacBook side of things.
With that in mind, it seems as though the best course of action is for me to format the external HDD to ext4 and thus avoid rsync'ing across Ethernet. Do you happen to know the state-of-play vis-à-vis FUSE-type utilities for OS X. I want to have this external HDD read & writeable in OS X.
After this I'll need a bit of a lesson in writing rsync scripts.
Cheers again for the rapid reply.
