I have come to understand that Rsync does not handle Mac Alises properly, and have now discovered that hundreds of aliases I've previously copied to my portable drive, are dead and useless because of this.
Is there a way to force Rsync to handle aliases? If the answer is a definitive "no", then how can I recursively batch convert all aliases in a directory to symlinks so that they will be handled by Rsync? I've found references to an Applescript that would apparently do this, but the site hosting the script is long dead & gone.
As a last resort, does anyone know of something other than Rsync that would allow for incremental backups and also handle Aliases?
