Rsync not syncing 100%

Postby smooveg on Fri Mar 22, 2013 1:25 pm

Hi All,

This is probably an Rsync issue and not Mint-specific, but I wanted to post anyway.

For some reason, when using rsync, it is skipping files that may have changed but have the same filename. I've used this same command in through Grsync without problems prior to making some fstab changes (specifically, mounting the source automatically). I don't think it's a permissions or other file issue, but maybe I'm missing something. The destination is an external USB drive (mounted in userspace) while the source is mounted using cifs directly in fstab, if that makes a difference.

Any thoughts would be great.

command: rsync -rtv --delete --ignore-existing -s /source/ /destination

When looking at the file stats AFTER running rsync, I get this:
