rsync

life is good with rsync.

I have been playing around with a python script using rsync to create an easy way for syncing new material from our server to local machines (it can be a pain in the ass to navigate folders looking for the new stuff) – keeping the folder structure etc… – and most importantly not destroying anything.

I’d never really understood how to use it – thinking it was only for local to remote transfers – but it works on anything. Brilliant!

RSYNC rocks!
