Projects / OtheRSync


OtheRSync is a program for the automatic, efficient, and safe synchronization of two machines over a network. It's efficient (using compression and incremental changes), safe (uses ssh, is fail-safe, and makes backups of deleted files by default), uses parallel processing, and supports feedback through the commandline prompt. It is built on top of rsync. New or changed files are synchronized, and files that have been deleted on one machine are deleted on the other machine. OtheRSync can resume without becoming broken or dangerous after an interruption or an error.

    Release Notes: A nasty bug that caused moved files to be added to the delete-list has been fixed (it still happens when the files are moved while OtheRSync is running). File permissions are now also synced (but not if they occurred while OtheRSync was running). Tail biting prevention has been added (the same configuration won't start again if it is still running; tailbiting was harmless, but not neat). Clash warnings now remain in the prompt after OtheRSync is done. Note that the configuration file has changed a bit, so don't run the new version with the old configuration file.
