For the command line it works, but I'd like to have in a .rsync-filter on a per directory basis. > > a > > ├── a-file > > └── .rsync-filter > > > > b > > └── a-file Following your suggestion, I tried: # .rsync-filter + */ - * combined with this command rsync --del -F -inav a/ b/ sending incremental file list *deleting a-file .d..t...... ./ Your suggestion (include/exclude on the command line) would work, but as mentioned, it is not on a per directory basis rsync --del --include='*/' --exclude='*' -inav a/ b/ sending incremental file list .d..t...... ./ Even rsync --del --filter='- *' -inav a/ b/ sending incremental file list .d..t...... ./ does not remove the excluded files So, why does rsync remove the files excluded via the .rsync-filter file, but doesn't touch the files excluded with command line filters? -- Heiko
