I would like to use rsync to send files to a remote machine

so machineA(original files)  --to--> machineB(storage)

if the files/directories get deleted on machineA they say on machineB but don't sync back

if the files/directories get added on machineA they sync to machineB

rsync -rP --ignore-existing /local/path machineB:/remote/path

Does this command make sense?
