rsync -aAXv to a FAT formatted directory?

Samba - rsync mailing list

Does rsync -aAXv /dir1 /dir2, where dir2 is a mounted FAT formatted SD
card, and then:

rsync -aAXv /dir2 /dir1, to restore the files in dir1 from the FAT
formatted SD card, restore the ACL and owner/permissions of the files
and directories in dir1?

    Thanks,

    John

Re: rsync -aAXv to a FAT formatted directory?

A FAT filesystem can't handle -X or -goplD from -a.  When you are stuck
on FAT you are pretty much limited to -rt instead of -a.

Also, it doesn't handle timestamps very well.  FAT has a 2 second time
resolution and it has no concept of a locale so the timestamps all
change whenever your TZ changes your clock (assuming it does).

Unless you have FAT on both ends you probably don't want FAT at all.
