rsync: "Skipping directory"

Postby ^rooker » Sat Dec 17, 2016 2:29 am

Rsync says "Skipping directory" when I try to copy a folder tree.

Spoiler alert! It took me 15mins now to figure out that this is a no-brainer.
Therefore I will write it down to save others the same humiliation ;)

I didn't tell rsync to do recursion.
Just add "-r" or "-a" as option to rsync and everything's fine.

May favorite set of arguments is:
Code: Select all
rsync -avP

Jumping out of an airplane is not a basic instinct. Neither is breathing underwater. But put the two together and you're traveling through space!
