I try to synchronize files between two machines using rsync, but it seems to copy all the files regardless file modification time. Two consecutive call of the command produces the same results, so it is clearly broken.
The command in question is:
rsync -r local/path user@host:/remote/path -v
The local file system is ext4 while the remote is ext3. I suspect the issue lies here, as I had similar problems when I tried to synchronize files between the same ext3 system and an NTFS drive. Converting the latter to ext3 solved the problem.
I cannot resort to conversion this time. Does anyone know the exact source of the problem and any possible solution?
