General :: Resume Transferof A Single File By Rsync?

Sep 25, 2010

I want to copy a big file from my harddrive to a removable drive by rsync. For some other reason, the operation cannot complete in a single run. So I am trying to figure out how to use rsync to resume file copying from where was left last time.

I have tried use the option --partial or --inplace, but together with --progress, I found rsync with --partial or --inplace actually starts from the beginning instead of from what was left last time. Mannually early stopping rsync and checking the size of the received file also confirm what I found.

But with --append, rsync starts from what was left last time. I am confused as I saw on the manpage --partial, --inplace or --append seem to relate to resuming copying from what was left last time. Is someone able to explain their difference? Why --partial or --inplace do not work for resuming copying? Is it true that for resuming copying, rsync has to work with option --append?

Also if a partial file was left by mv or cp not by rsync, will rsync --append correctly resume the file copying?

General :: Resume RSYNC Over SSH After Broken Connection?

Jun 27, 2011

I have to transfer large amounts of data (>80 GB) over ssh using rsync. Everything is working fine, but the DSL connection where the backup data is sent from will drop once every 24h for up to 3 minutes (switching providers is not an option).

How do I:

Automatically restart the transfer when the connection is back up? Make sure there are not by accident two rsync commands running at the same time?

General :: Rsync - Password-file Not Working ?

May 23, 2011

I made a shell backup script that uses Rsync and I am trying to get rid of the password prompt because it will use a CRON to run. I have set my variable in my shell script at:

PASSWORD_FILE=rsync_password

And the password in that file only takes up 1 line.

However when I run (ignore $DESTINATION)

rsync -aRvz tmp $DESTINATION --password-file=$PASSWORD_FILE

It still gives me the prompt. How can I accomplish this? I cannot allow a prompt and I do not want to have to use keys.

General :: Rsync Error - Read-only File System - 30

Jan 4, 2011

I regularly rsync directories to an external usb drive. Recently I've started getting errors which look:
blah blah:Read-only file system (30)

The external usb drive has two partitions (ext3 and fat32) and I rsync to the ext3 one. The rsync command is
rsync -ahi --delete /home/mike/some_dir /media/usb_drive

People have reported this error with faulty usb cables but everything was working fine until recently so it seem unlikely a usb cable would suddenly wear off.

General :: How To Encrypt A Single File

Sep 14, 2010

I need to temporarily store a file containing sensitive data in a public server, in a secure way. I think that encrypting the whole file would be much more secure than creating a passworded .zip encrypted file, because they could be subject of brute force attacks. Attacking a whole file of unknow format is harder, I think. I thought of something like the command:

Code:
$ programidontknow --encrypt mysensitive.file --output-file mumblerumble.file
then the program asks interactively for a password)
$ ls
mysensitive.file mumblerumble.file

So I get one file that may look like junk. I tried to search how to do it with GnuPG. But it seems that GnuPG needs much configuration I dont want to do. I simply want to type the password one time to get the file. It doesnt need to retain any configuration for what I want to do. In similar scenario, I would want to do this on a machine/account that is not mine.

General :: How To Flatten Single File Directories

May 1, 2011

I've spent ages trying to build this and had a good look around for a way to do it. I have a directory tree which contains a set of folders and files. Some of the folders contain more than one file but most contain only a single one. I'm trying to move all of the files which are on their own in directories one level below the root into the root. E.g:

Root is: /volume3
Single file in a sub folder: /volume3/20110103/20110103.log
File should end up as: /volume3/20110103.log

I know how to flatten the entire structure fairly easily but its the conditional part which I can't figure out how to do.

General :: Rsync On Windows To Make It Keep Special Characters In File-names

Sep 2, 2010

We're in the process of implementing an offsite backup of all our servers to a remote Linux server. We're using rsync over ssh.What I've found is that characters such as ±, ¶,´ and £ are replaced on the Linux server with underscores.I don't mind if it changes these characters in the filenames of documents, but when it renames a language pack from Espa±ol.clx to Espa_ol.clx, it could cause issues for us further down the line.

What do I need to do differently to make the special characters copy over correctly? For the initial sync which will take place locally, before the machine is moved offsite, I have SAMBA enabled. I am able to copy files from Windows to the Samba share, retaining the original filename, though it looks different in the Linux directory listing, i.e. têst becomes ƒªstThese files get deleted by rsync when it runs, as it does not match the filenames.

General :: Best Script To Have Rsync Make Image File Of Hard Drive

May 9, 2011

I have never used rsync before, only DD. But from what I have been reading, rsync is better becasue it will basically mirror your hard drive, thus being able to run the cloned software from the new hard drive. My problem is I do not know what is the best commands or even the basic commands to use in rsync. I am trying to make an image from a external hard drive to a usb drive. That way my chances of messing up he original software is not as risky becasue I'll just restore the image onto another hard drive. Does anyone know the best script to have rsync make an image file of a hard drive and place it on a usb drive and then restore it?

General :: Download A Single File In 2 Parts To Different Locations Using Wget?

Jan 18, 2011

I need to use wget (or curl or aget etc) to download a file to two different download destinations by downloading it in two halves:

First: 0 to 490000 bytes of file
Second: 490001 to 1000000 bytes of file.

I will be downloading this to separate download destinations and will merge them back to speed up the download. The file is really large and my ISP is really slow, so I need to get help from friends to download this in parts (actually in multiple parts)

The question below is similar but not the same as my need: How to download parts of same file from different sources with curl/wget?

aget

aget seems to download in parts but I have no way of controlling precisely which part (either in percentage or in bytes) that I wish to download.

Extra Info

Just to be clear I do not wish to download from multiple locations, I want to download to multiple locations. I also do not want to download multiple files (it is just a single file). I want to download parts of the same file, and I want to specify the parts that I need to download.

General :: Xfce: Save Page As: Single File Vs Multiple Files?

I save it, and the result is almost always foo.html and directory foo_files. But I think under KDE I could choose the format, one of them being something like "Single page" (only one file; the colecction of .png, etc is embedded into that file). And this is the format I want Xfce (or Firefox) to use when downloading to hdd.

General :: Single Click To Activate Items - Gnome - File Locate Dialog

Jan 21, 2010

I have changed the preference in the Nautilus file manager/browser to "Single click to activate items" and it works.

However, when I run an application, say Totem Movie Player, and select Movie/Open I am presented with a Nautilus like file navigation dialog. This is a common dialog to most Gnome applications - probably part of Gnome. Problem is, the dialog does not respect my "single click..." preference.

I have tested this in Ubuntu 9.10, 10.04 alpha 2 and CentOS 5.4 - I do not think it is distribution related.

Server :: Multiple File Pointers In A Single File?

Apr 20, 2011

I have files a, b, c and d. They're all relatively large and are served up by a static web server optimized for this purpose. I can get requests that look like this:

/abcd
/ad
/bacdac
...

Each request is basically a request for a concatenation of the files in the order of the letters. The list of possible requests is finite, but large enough that disk space will run out very quickly and be very expensive if I create all possible files via concatenation.Is there a way to create a pointer file like abcd that is essentially a multi-file symlink that first points to a then to be then to c then to d? So if the contents of the files were as follows:

a: hello
b: there
c: whats

General :: Copy A Read-Only File And Make The Copy Writable With A Single Cp Command?

Mar 1, 2011

How to copy a Read-Only file in Linux and make the copy writable with a single cp command in Linux (Ubuntu 10.04)? The --no-preserve and --preserve seemed to be good candidates, except that they should "and" the mode flags, while what I am looking for is something that will "or" them (add +w mode).

More details: I have to import a repository from GIT to Perforce. I want that all Perforce depot files are Read-Only (that is how Perforce was designed), while all other files that were derived/copied from depot files are writable. Currently if a Makefile tries to copy a Read-Only file then the derived file will also be Read-only. This leads to build-errors when cp tries to overwrite Read-Only file second time. Of course the --force is a workaround here but then the derived file is also Read-Only. Also I do not want to mess with "chmod" after each "cp" command - I will do that only as the last resort.

Debian Installation :: When Choose Resume Partitioning Installer Then Freezes At Detect File Systems

The installation worked just fine before with setting in manual partitioning an EFI system partition and a root partition.But when I try to partition with root as an encrypted volume I get this error when I wanna write changes to disk:" the attempt to mount a file system with type vfat in scsi1 partition sda at /boot/efi failed"When I choose resume partitioning the installer then freezes at "detect file systems".

Because my harddrive needs specific alignment I've made beforehand in gdisk:EFI System Partition of 100mib at /dev/sda1/boot partition of 512mib at /dev/sda2/ (because I expect the installer to want a /boot too for an encrypted device)rest of harddrive reserved for root at /dev/sda3

Debian :: Rsync And Different File Systems ?

Oct 21, 2010

I have 2 different mounts. One points to a local windows share(NTFS ->Samba) and the other one points to a PPTP VPN connection sharing(I belive that is NTFS too). I use "cifs" scheme in my fstab to mount these. And I use my Debian box to copy between these 2 mounts. I have started using Rsync for that purpose, I think that it works fine for now. My main problem is that it looks like Rsync cannot figure out if the files are same or not in source and target folders when I use these mounts. Most of the time Rsync copies the same files and folders over and over again even though those files and folders are on the target.

I am wondering if there is a way to make this scheme work? Being on a Vpn connection(slow) a Windows box, Rsync could have save a lot of my time if it could have recognized the files and folders that are same on both ends
