Quick rsync question
Hi everyone,

It's my first post on these forums, so please forgive me if it's in the wrong location.

I've set-up an incremental backup system between a primary file server and secondary disk on a backup server. So far so good everything has been running fine the last couple days, but I want to make sure I'm using the correct rsync flags before I'm getting too far into this (I assume everything is correct after consulting several online sources).

rsync -e ssh -cpogrt --archive --numeric-ids --delete --exclude-from=/path/to/exclude/file.txt --link-dest=/path/to/diskmount/daily.1 root@serverip:/ /path/to/diskmount/daily.0

Are those the flags I should be using for making full-system backups to this other disk?

Hm, I don't know the usage of rsync out of my head, but you might want to have a look at the rsync man page:

man rsync
If you want to do incremental backups, this tutorial might be interesting for you:
