I usually backup from server1 files to a server2 machine by doing the following in server1

rsync --progress -avhe ssh www/ user@

What I'm looking for is to completely synchronize files on server2 based on what is currently on server1. I know that there are several extra files on server2 that probably I want to remove.

How could I perform this using rsync?



rsync has a --delete flag: http://www.manpagez.com/man/1/rsync/
