Rsync for OS X to backup volumes

What are the proper parameters for using rsync on OS X.  We want to back up a few folders on the Xserve raid to an ethernet Lacie drive with the rsync performing an initial backup and then only modifying files if they have changed.

Thanks

There are tonnes of commands and options

Have you taken a look at the man pages?

If not, open your terminal app

At the command line type "man rsync".

You will see all of the command switches.

Thanks,

Time to do some reading on the manual, I have printed it out from the command line.
