Hello List,

- occasionally rsync causes oS 13.1 to freeze , necessitating turn
off power to reboot.

- the rsync instruction, leading to freeze is :


rsync -avr --delete --delete-after --exclude=/ /home/ /mnt


Did anyone experience similar event?

'-a' = "archive mode" & is already recursive (your 'r' is redundant)

'--delete' and '--delete-after' are two forms of the same command. Use
one, or the other, but not both.

'--exclude= needs single quotes around the items to exclude and you
want to use multiple directives instead of combining them into one, e.g.
(mind the line wrap!):

'rsync -av --delete-after --exclude='/' --exclude='/home/' \
--exclude='/mnt/' {source} {target}

Don't forget to explicitly include or exclude the trailing slash on
{source} ... it is very important ... see 'man rsync'

hth & regards,
