rsync with 2 drives

Hi,

I tried to use rsync for my Amiga. I tried to copy one drive to another drive drive like home: to test: but I am not able to do this with rsync.

Unfortunately I didn't find any proper howto for sync one drive to another.
Does anyone have a hint for me ?

There is a Readme in this: http://aminet.net/package/util/misc/rsync-2.5.5_bin

Or use the manpage of your linux installation if you don't know how to use. In short:
Code:
Usage: rsync [OPTION]... SRC [SRC]... DEST
  or   rsync [OPTION]... SRC [SRC]... [USER@]HOST:DEST
  or   rsync [OPTION]... SRC [SRC]... [USER@]HOST::DEST
  or   rsync [OPTION]... SRC [SRC]... rsync://[USER@]HOST[:PORT]/DEST
  or   rsync [OPTION]... [USER@]HOST:SRC [DEST]
  or   rsync [OPTION]... [USER@]HOST::SRC [DEST]
  or   rsync [OPTION]... rsync://[USER@]HOST[:PORT]/SRC [DEST]
The ':' usages connect via remote shell, while '::' & 'rsync://' usages connect
to an rsync daemon, and require SRC or DEST to start with a module name.

Hello daxb,

I use rsync in Linux but even a very simple line like "rsync home: v4_transfer:" does not work. It shows me the help information again.

Unfortunately I don't know what is the correct syntax to simple sync everything from home: to v4_transfer:

This tool looks really nice and it seems to be a good solution. However I am still interested in the rsync solution and whether it is possible.

You may ask the author of rsync why it doesn't work as expected. Could be a bug or whatever. I never tried rsync on Amiga. However, if you can't get rsync to work I also would recommend using BackUp (via CLI or GUI). Works perfect here and does more or less the same as rsync.
