I use rsync to back up my files, but I want to exclude uninteresting bulk files in cache directories of netscape, opera and mozilla. After reading the man pages, I use following call:
/usr/local/bin/rsync \ --exclude "rob/.netscape/cache/" \ --exclude "rob/.mozilla/**/Cache/" \ --exclude "rob/.opera/cache4/" \ -avzC /home/rob /home/BACKUP
However, the exclude lines seem to be ineffective; all the cache directories are rsync'ed each time this backup script runs.
Any ideas why that is?
Thanks Rob. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
