Description Romary SONRIER 2005-08-21 09:54:43 UTC
Hello , in a bash script file , i use:
rsync -aHvzc  --delete --delete-excluded --exclude-from=$TOEXCULE_LIST_FILES

And this command never delete any file on receiver side...
Is this normal?

Sorry, I'am not using:
>>rsync -aHvzc  --delete --delete-excluded --exclude-from=$TOEXCULE_LIST_FILES

but 
>>rsync -aHvzc  --delete--files-from=$TORSYNC_LIST_FILES

And this command never delete any file on receiver side...
Is this normal?

Keep in mind that --delete only affects directories that rsync sends.  See the
mailing list for a discussion of --files-from and --delete strategies, including
a reference to the remote-remove script in the support directory that allows you
to specify files to delete on an rsync daemon.
