I'm using rsync 3.0pre7 (30.PR16) on my Mac OS X 10.4 systems. It works very fine except one minor issue.
If I "lock" a directory or document in the Finder (Apple + I) and then backup this file, the file is not "locked" on the backup. I'm using the following command:
rsync --archive --no-group --xattrs --delete-during --human-readable --verbose 'source' 'target'
All other resource forks are stored correctly.
Thanks for your help,
See the patches/flags.diff file for optional file-flags support. I think that handles the locked attribute. That patch works, but may have some problems.
