What about hard links and delete options

Why the -H option is not added? I've done a quick search in my arch system and there are a lot of hard link in the /usr/share folders. Moreover should the -delet option be added to in order to be sure that the cloned system contains all and only the files which are present in the original one? Thank you, Xwang

-'H' and '-delete' info added. Closing. -- Karol (talk) 22:32, 14 January 2014 (UTC)

What happened to this page?

Ok, I started this page, so I'm biased. It used to be clearly written, with an easy to understand example on how to use rsync and its exclude format. Now it's a one liner with the excludes mashed together and most of the page is dedicated to setting up your fstab. Why? Wooptoo (talk) 19:47, 6 March 2013 (UTC)
