http://crunchbanglinux.org – Afternoon All,I am trying to backup a partition on my laptop to a connected external hdd. I would also like to exclude two directories.Using rsync I've triedrsync -av /Stuff/ /media/disk/backup --exclude=/Stuff/Dropbox --exclude=/Stuff/OSsThis will rsync but does not exclude the two folders. I have googled the problem but most things deal with remote servers, and I can't sort out what I need.All help gratefully received.CordiallySimon (HowTos)
