I have been testing rsync and found a weird bug when copying files and folders from a partition to another:
If I do this:
rsync -avE --delete '/Volumes/disk1/origin/' '/Volumes/disk2/destination/'
It copies/syncronizes correctly.
The next time I use rsync for the same syncronization, some modification dates in files (not folders!) become incorrect (are changed to the current date and time), even though I have used the
-a in the
rsync command which should preserve it.
The most weird thing is that if I redo it, the dates that were wrong are correct now, which means rsync is changing the modification dates every second time it is run, and when it changes the dates, it is always to the same files, I don't see a pattern other than just affecting files and the same files.
What am I doing wrong and can this be fixed?
This is with OS X 10.9.5, using the terminal, rsync 2.6.9
