I have to admit, I really don't get this -- but, on the other hand,
haven't tried 'em. Plain old rsync always struck me as blessedly simple.
"rsync -avz olddirectory newdirectory" Just Plain Works -- and
"rsync -avz olddirectory username at newhost:newdirectory" for network
copying (esp. if you set RSYNC_RSH=/usr/bin/ssh).
There are options you use rarely, such as:
--delete #Update destination dirs to remove files no longer needed
...but I need those only rarely, and look 'em up when I do.
