After sometime, I think there are time when we had to dig to our backup repository and restore things.

And this is when the combination of rsync and ssh become handy..

let’s say want to rsync from remote host to local..

rsync -avz -e "ssh -i fc.keys" root@192.168.133.1:/path/to/backup /path/to/local

Example Usages:

[namran@nb-namran ~]$ rsync -avz -e ssh root@fc:/media/NAMRANNET/namran/.thunderbird .
receiving incremental file list
.thunderbird/
.thunderbird/appreg
.thunderbird/profiles.ini
.thunderbird/wudj17zc.default/
.thunderbird/wudj17zc.default/.parentlock
.thunderbird/wudj17zc.default/XPC.mfasl
