I mounted a disk at
/data. This is empty at the moment.
rsync to perform
mkdir -p than
mkdir as the file I needs to be at at level 4 i.e.
dir_3 doesn't exists.
If I create the needed sub-directories manually I am able to perform rsync using following command:
rsync -avz source_diretory/ /data/dir_1/dir_2/dir_3
But if I don't create the sub directories, this command throws an error:
mkdir: cannot create directory ‘/data/dir_1/dir_2/dir_3/’: No such file or directory
I tried Googling, reading rsync's man page, tried using
-R but could not make it work.
rsync perform something like
mkdir -p or is that out of its scope?
