Include all top-level directories with /*/ (so that rsync will traverse /etc and /home when looking for files to copy) and second-level directories.
indeed the rsync command works with multiple directories but run from the command line, what I was trying to achieve was using Grsync to.
Directly from the rsync man page: The syntax for requesting multiple files from a remote host is done by specifying additional remote-host args.
You can come up with a command to parallelize multiple rsync runs, which would be N times faster if you're writing to N disks at the same time.
If you're doing this frequently, I'd also suggest handling this through scripting. If the destination root is always the same, such as: rsync.
Rsync is a simple tool for intelligently syncing local and remote directories. We will create two test directories and some test files with the following commands: . Is it possible to backup multiple folders are once over SSH?.
I would like to find and backup all *.mp4 files from /Pictures and its sub-directories and move them to a single directory on a remote. I can find.
OK I feel really dumb. Before I even posted this question my friend showed me how to do it and it is really simple. To exclude multiple.
