- How does RSYNC do incremental Backups 5 answers
I backup my LAMP server using RSync over SSH.
Currently, it's on an hourly incremental schedule.
From a 14GB full backup, it's backing up a further 15~MB hourly.
Looking at the files it's backing up again, I think most of these haven't changed.
Does the file last accessed time attribute mean the file has technically changed and would be re-backed up?
