RE: Moving /home to a LVM

Ah, sound a bit like robocopy for windows, although that one doesn't do
incremental backups as far as I know.

Thx for the info.

rsync actually in useful in creating incremental backups, locally or over
network. rysnc also can work like a copy function as I updated you on the last
post. I will look for any files changed during a period and if there is any
will update it with files from the source to the destination. cp seems add
server load which copying a large directory, however rsync does it with hardly
any load.
