Rsync: how to make backup copies and transfer files

Rsync is a powerful tool to create a backup copy of your directories on another disk, or to transfer files to/from a remote machine. It is an excellent, more flexible alternative to scp, tar and other file-transferring tools. A thorough description can be found in the rsync man page.

As always, a few examples are better than one thousand words.

Consult the rsync man page for further details and to check many other usages and interesting options.
