I am a beginner with the Unix system so please bear with me if this sounds noobish.
The most common way to use rsync to do an incremental backup is to do it like this
rsync -av --delete <source> <destination>
Is there a way to do it in such a way that you compare directory1 with directory2 but then store the output in directory3?
Basically, what I want is to have a series of daily incremental backups with one full backup to use as the base.
So if I have these folders and today is
/folder/to/back/up <-- source /backup/base <-- base /backup/20130101 <-- incremental /backup/20130102 <-- incremental
I want to compare
/backup/base and store the result in a new folder,
