I've set up a TimeMachine Netatalk share on my Ubunutu server that I would like to use for a TimeMachine destination. However, I don't want to do the full backup over the network - it will take a long time. I would rather do a local backup to an external drive, and then move the drive to the unix machine and copy the backup over directly.
I have already performed the local backup; everything is on my removable drive. I do not understand, however, how to copy the data from the removable drive onto my Netatalk share. If I try using rsync -avHXA, I get a lot of errors. From Google, I understand these to be link errors since Linux doesn't allow HardLinks to directories.
Is there anyway to copy the backups over?
