Linux on SSD Laptop is the Bomb!

Sun, 2017-11-05 01:42

OMG, I have a new linux laptop and it uses a SSD drive. This is so cool, to have a screaming fast linux box without the spinning disk in it.

That being said, I don't have too much RAM, but sufficient. Anyone out there ever built a linux box with 16 or 32 GB or RAM, and does it make a difference.

Also I wish there were better ergonomics on a linux laptop, the MacBook is pretty good when it comes to ergonomics of the physical laptop machine.

WTF is wrong with my rsync options?

Sat, 2017-11-04 23:33

My rsync options:

options=( --archive # -a --acls # -A --xattrs # -X --verbose # -v --hard-links # -H --delete --log-file=backup.log --include "/some-folder/folder/*" --exclude "/some-folder" ) sudo rsync "${options[@]}" /* /media/backup-folder

It's working the problem is that old files are not getting removed. So if I rename a folder and run the backup, the folder is duplicated with both old and new names.

What am I doing wrong?
