Rsync over SSH for restoring backup purpose

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/appreg
.thunderbird/profiles.ini

.thunderbird/wudj17zc.default/.parentlock

    I think that the usability of Cloud Computing is important and from the look and feel of the desktop-style environment, it seems like it would be really intuitive. Thanks for the screenshots 🙂
