http://www.linuxquestions.org – I am using SSH and Rsync as a backup system. I just want to try copying the contents of one folder to one on a remote server. What happens is that rsync recreates the directory AND changes the permissions on that remote directory. This is the command: Code: rsync -av -e "ssh -i ~/my_secret_key" /home/billg/videos/ [email protected]:/home/steve/backup/video.bak The permissions on the remote dir change from this: Code: drwxr-xr-x steve steve 4096 2010-09-09 15:13 video.bak To this: Code: drwxrwxrwx steve steve 4096 2010-09-09 15:13 video.bak not good. Why does this happen (HowTos)
