Hi there,

I ran a command in Rsync to copy files from one folder to another, following a tutorial, but now there seems to be no way to stop this. Is there no way to remove the link? I tried deleting the destination folder but it creates a new one every time.

Er, stop running it?

Maybe part of this tutorial was to add rsync to a crontab?

Rsync is a one-and-done command, it won't keep recreating the destination unless you keep running it somehow.

My other brain is hung like a horse too.

Yeah, I use rsync for different things daily, and Kickaha is right as usual. I'm curious about what exactly this tutorial said to do.

Me three. What was the actual command you ran? At least what were the flags?

My typical is -avzP when I'm copying files at work.

I read this at work but wasn't able to really stop to seek more details. I also use this daily via manually typed out commands and scripts.

This thread was my real intro to rsync. Maybe it'll help you as much as it did me.
