One awesome thing about DreamHost is that they provide all hosting customers with 50GB of free online backup space. It can be accessed using ftp, sftp, and rsync.
I am trying to use it to make a backup of my USB key. I am always moving between computers, so documents that I am actively working on tend to follow me on the key. Having a backup would be useful in case it got lost or damaged.
I am trying to figure out what the correct terminal command would be to synchronize a folder from Mac OS X to DreamHost using rsync. I think it should be something like:
rsync -aP --protocol=29 /Volumes/USBKEYNAME/* BACKUPUSERACCOUNT@BACKUPUSERSERVER.dreamhost.com::keybackup
Is that right? If any rsync gurus are out there, I would really appreciate their input on what options and syntax to use.
