I would like to do a local partition backup with rsync.

It works right with a partition that contains /home:

rsync -av --delete /hda10 /sdb7

But it does not work right with the partition that I boot into:

rsync -av --delete --exclude /home --exclude /usr/local --exclude /hda10 / /hdb5

He does it the first time, but the second time, which is supposed to be just an update, he copies all files again and runs out of room.

Anybody uses rsync to backup the partition that they boot into?

Did you try adding '--exclude /hdb5' in there?

Roberto, that floated through the mind but I did not *act* on it, which I now will. Thanks!
