Description peter.schubnell 2006-12-24 16:59:46 UTC
I have a local harddisk (mounted as root /), which i want to copy to another harddisk (mounted as /mnt/root1). If i start e.g.:

rsync -avH --delete --force /usr /mnt/root1

the contents of /usr and /mnt/root1 afterwards are NOT the same. But some other directories ARE the same afterwards.
Comment 1 Wayne Davison 2006-12-25 01:28:09 UTC
The command you cite should be making /mnt/root1/user the same as /usr, not /mnt/root1.  See the manpage about how to use a trailing slash on the source if you wanted to copy the contents of the /usr dir into /mnt/root1 rather than the dir by name, followed by its contents.

Sorry, what i mean, is that the contents of /usr and /mnt/root1/usr afterwards are NOT the same.

What exactly differs between /usr and /mnt/root1/usr?
Comment 4 peter.schubnell 2006-12-27 09:56:09 UTC
Sorry for the panic. I finally controlled the files being transfered with MD5SUM. All files are being successfully transfered.
What first made me believing there are differences, is that an "du -s" on the directories i've transfered against the original directories showed me different sizes.
