I've had to break my rsync tasks down into smaller jobs given the size of my directories. Essentially, I'm doing it alphabetically (i.e., script that syncs folders starting with A-D, E-H, etc, etc).
The issue I'm having is this.....my A-D filter.txt file works fine, but all of the others fail. I believe the issue is because the path that I'm syncing is:
/AUser/db/Backups/*** /AUser2/db/Backups/*** /CUser/db/Backups/*** /EUser/db/Backups/***
My filter.txt file for A-D looks like this:
- E* - e* - F* - f* (etc all the way through Z) + */db/ + */db/Backups/*** - *
The one above works with no issue. However, this one does not:
- A* - a* - B* - b* - C* - c* - D* - d* - I* - i* - J* (etc all the way through Z) + */db/ + */db/Backups/*** - *
I'm guessing my exclusion of either d or B is causing this (it's excluding the db folder or the Backups folder??) but I can't figure out why since I have an include for */db/ and /db/Backups/**
