I am relatively new to Linux(Ubuntu 12.04) . I am researching on how to use
rsync to backup a certain folder from my local (ubuntu) computer to my windows xp networked (shared) computer.
What I want and intend to do is use the command to copy only the files that have changed since my last
rsync backup to the xp computer.
I know there's probably software out there that can do this but I don't like adding things (software) to my computer unless I absolutely have to.
My home network set-up is shared using samba. My home network is shared within 'WORKGROUP' settings, I have certain folders that are shared on my xp computer for this reason. I figured out how to use the rsync to only copy files (on the same computer) to another folder on the same hdd. This is what I tried within terminal,
rsync -av /home/danny/temp /home/danny/temp2
But I want to be able to have the destination (networked) folder my xp computer. Any help would be appreciated cheers.
