    I'm looking to use rsync to backup external hard drive A to external hard drive B. A is formatted NTFS, and B is HFS+.

    I'm familiar with scp, but never used rsync.

    What command do I need to run, given it is a local transfer rather than network based?

    Never mind, it's mind blowingly simple:

    rsync -au /Volumes/driveA /Volumes/driveB
