Do not create directories on destination (new --ignore-non-existing-dirs option?)
Last modified: 2011-08-09 18:23:35 UTC
I'm trying to prevent creation of new directories on destination.
The goal is to populate an existing file tree (means using --recursive) only with new files, not folders+files.
The situation is quite simple, I sync and merge two file trees, A&B into one, C.
Then I add files to C tree, that I would like to sync back to A and B.
Both A&B trees are similar, but leaf directories differs.
I tried to ask to the mailing list first if it was possible with current options, without any answer, so I guess this is not possible. Would love to be wrong and that enhancement/new feature is not.
