does anybody have a tip on this? Both my computers (Win10, Ubuntu 17.10)
have already aged to the point of making their first full backups on their
own, and the 'problem' persists: rsync --checksum only checksums files on
the client, not the server.
I find this strange because not only the manual says otherwise, but there
are comments on this list and a even a feature request mentioning the slow
checksuming on server during full backups!
I'd appreciate any help to elucidate what's happening on my system. I need
cheksuming working on the server for data integrity reasons. Thanks!
