Backing up using rsync
Hi, I was wanting to create like a batch file for Apple Mac for rsync but not sure how you do this.
I just want the file to sit on my desktop and click it every time to make a backup.
These are the commands I wish to use.
rsync -a -v /Users/administrator/Pictures /Volumes/Photos\ Disk\ 1
rsync -a -v /Users/administrator/Pictures /Volumes/Photos\ Disk\ 2
Also I am using the -a rather than -r as it preserves the time modified stamp, whereas -r will switch it to the time it was transferred to my knowledge.
With the -a option if my computer died and I had to reimage would I still be able to access everything off the external HDD that is being used as the backup?
Any assistance would be great, i've been googling but havent really come up with much.
