Bug with binary file backup.
Wed, 6 Feb 2002 16:40:50 -0500 (EST)
Thanks in advance for the help.
I just began trying to use rdiff-backup today. It seems to fit my needs
I did have one problem. Given ./dirA/ and ./dirB/ directories and binary
files ./dirA/bin.img and ./dirB/bin.img.
I do: rdiff-backup ./dirA ./backup
Then: rdiff-backup ./dirB ./backup
./backup at this point should be identical to ./dirB with the exception of
the existence of the ./backup/rdiff-backup-data.
However, if a binary file present under ./dirA and ./dirB has the same
name, path, and filesize, it is not replaced. I then have a tree that is
identical to ./dirB except for the binary file from dirA.
If I remove the ./backup/rdiff-backup-data directory and just do a
diff --recursive ./dirB ./backup it lists the file as different
Is there a way around this problem?
