Re(1): Bidirectional filesystem syncing - DirSync Pro vs. Unison

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 87.118.101.102] on December 04, 2008 06:07 AM
using rsync for bidirectional sync will lose data.
the -u option will only compare the current date.

if a file is modified on both sides then the newer edit will win.

unison will flag an error and tell you that both sides have been changed, and ask you what to do, you can then look at a diff and decide. using rsync in the way described will NOT do that.

rsync by itself is NOT suitable for bidirectional synchronization.
