"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

How-To Geek has great tutorials, including one on rsync: http://www.howtogeek.com/135533/how-to-use-rsync-to-backup-your-data-on-linux/

Rsync has many options, but here is its simplest form:

rsync -av --delete /Directory1/ /Directory2/

Open in new window


The code above will synchronize the contents of Directory1 to Directory2, and leave no differences between the two. If rsync finds that Directory2 has a file that Directory1 does not, it will delete it. If rsync finds a file that has been changed, created, or deleted in Directory1, it will reflect those same changes to Directory2.
