I'm totally committed to getting this to work.
You will need to refer to the rsync man page
, which unfortunately is not the most accessible document. Also I've recently updated my Updating Dune Index
First, make sure rsync is installed properly on both the PC and the Dune by using it to list the Dune storage:
Substitute the Dune's actual IP address, of course. This should list all the storage devices that are attached to the Dune,
Second, you should try rsyncing to a local directory. The first time, it will copy the entire index to a new location. Then change something in one movie in MyMovies, and rerun rsync. It should copy only a few files. Get this all working on a local directory before you use it on the Dune index. (Especially since a typo can easily lead to the entire index being deleted.)
rsync --verbose --recursive --delete --times "My Movies/" mmcopy
Once it's all working to your satisfaction, replace mmcopy with the rsync:// url.
