I've updated the RSYNC module to version 2.00.01...
This module now comes with rsync 3.0.3pre1
At least it should now support the --iconv command line option and of course includes a lot of bug fixes. I haven't had the chance to try the --iconv feature, so please try it and give some feedback. (Hi sh0dan )
Works fine. I upgraded by uninstalling v2.00.00, and installing v2.00.01.
Configuration is maintained from the earlier version. I had to add "charset = utf-8" to the configuration file, for iconv to work. It is synchronizing right now, so I'll get back to you on whether that part of the project actually work.
But a big thank you from here. Rsync is just such a great backup tool for multi TB data!
Edit: Charset conversion works like a charm - now all filenames are correct! Big thanks again!
