Getting royally fed up with windows, and am working as hard as I can towards replacing it with somthing that works. Coupled with the fact that I am now working as an IT tech/Electronic handyman/Linux sysadmin -- I'm well on the way to becoming a proper Linux user.

comment Is there a way to mirror two severs on Ubuntu?
Note that the loops mentioned below will not be a problem with Rsync, as it maintains the modify dates of the files it transfers if set correctly.

Well, no awesome automated powersaving option, but I wasn't holding out much hope that one even existed. Cheers.

I have confirmed that the mtime on a folder is set if a file within it is deleted. this means that even deletions are picked up by find, this is good.

Well that certainly answers part of the problem. I already have the rsync thing wired up as you describe. The find idea though will do wonders for things thouhg. This still does not solve the drive powersaving issues.
