|Subject:||[rdiff-backup-users] getting diffs using rdiff-backup|
|Date:||Thu, 26 Jun 2008 18:19:23 +0530|
I am using rdiff-backup on windows(Vista & XP ).
I have installed rdiff-backup by following the steps given in http://katastrophos.net/andre/blog/2005/11/02/rdiff-backup-on-windows/ link using CYGWIN.
When I run the command on cygwin command prompt(I dont know what to say it) rdiff-backup working fine and I am able to take the backup as well as incrementals smoothly.
I am executing following command::
$ rdiff-backup -b D:/Source/ D:/dest/
It is storing the mirror of Source directory's file to dest/. When I make some changes to "Source\file.txt" and again take the back up by running same command, I get one DIFF file in subdirectory of Dest/. It is fine.
This Diff file contains extra reverse diffs between both files (Source\file.txt and dest\file.txt).
BUT I do not require reverse diffs. I require Diffs of these two files Source\file.txt and dest\file.txt.
That is the data that added or deleted to source file.
Suppose I have one 2KB text(Source\source.txt) file and I am taking the backup of it to Dest\ directory. Now If i add 1KB of data to source.txt file and again I am taking the incremental backup of it then this time I require this 1KB of data that is added(not old 2KB data).
Please guide me for getting this. If there is any command for this please provide me.
I really need your suggestions.
