In reply to: rsync?
Parent article: CLI Magic: Simple backup is Mirdir (Linux.com)
I could, of course, recommend mirrordir as a much better alternative, but I would be joining the wrong choir. The only real solution is painfully obvious: install a proper logical volume manager, rsync and friends are for wimps.
Seriously, I like articles like these: simple solutions for simple but real problems. Users always have the option to adjust their tools to their needs and experience, sysadmins should know how to pick the right tool for the job in the first place.
So by all means, Joe, keep it coming.
