Re: backup commands that handle renaming smarter than rsync? Avoiding data-de-duplication.

have had similar ideas. Here are some links that might or might not be
helpful.

http://lists.samba.org/archive/rsync/2005-November/013948.html
http://archives.free.net.ph/message/20071107.221234.6182738a.en.html

In the last link maybe the --fuzzy and --delete-after or --delete-
during may help.


Very useful! Thanks James. --fuzzy seems not very useful since so far as I
understand it will only look in the current folder for a rename. Not very
useful.

On the other hand the --detect-renamed patch (back in 2006) for rsync seems
very promising. I want to figure out what it does but I cannot find that
option in my rsync version nor manual. Maybe the patch never made it to
the trunk.
