I realized this wont fix the problem of renames. My second thought on this would be to develop a new transfer method that uses rsync initially to get a file listing and then construct a list of files that need to be transferred. Then you pass this to the tar method and use this rather than the –newer option of tar. This would solve both the deletion and rename problem of incremental tar.

Subject: Re: [BackupPC-users] Tar method - deleted files workaround

 

You could use a combination of $Conf{DumpPostUserCmd} and BackupPC_deleteFile to accomplish this.

As a workaround for the tar method not detecting deletions on localhost backups, would it be possible to write a script that is run after each incremental to perform a file listing on the source directory and compare that to the list of backed up files and delete those in the backup that are no longer in the source directory. I realize this is a workaround and would only be appropriate for localhost backups but it wouldn’t be a bad solution since incrementals are quick, run when no one is using the system and it would make the full backups much faster than rsyncd.
