[SOLVED] touch with rsync

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hey guys. I have a rsync command as follows in a expect script Code: spawn rsync -a -r -z -v -h -p -i --log-file=/path/rsync.log --progress --delete-excluded -e ssh user@ip:/source /destination My question is. When rsync has downloaded a file or folder, how can i get rsync to touch the file / folder with a date and timestamp for when the download was completed on the destination? Thanks on advance. Kind regards. EDIT. So i see that -a preserves for example timestamps. EDIT2. Changed -a out with -o and -g along with -p these preserve the group, owner and permissions but not symbolic l (Hardware)
