After making a backup using rdiff-backup I compared it to another
backup done by rsync. Comparision was done using rsync too with --
dry-run and --itemize-changes options. rsync reported incorrect time
for all symlinks backed up by rdiff-backup. Symlink date/time has
been reset to current time.
Please let me know, how is it possible to force rdiff-backup to keep
original date/time of symlinks.
You need to specify more information for people to be able to assist
you, such as:
- what version of rdiff-backup
- what platform (OS) and version
- the filesystem you are backing up from and on to
- the commandline you used to run rdiff-backup
Also, remove the --dry-run option from rsync. Then, confirm with a
second comparison (rsync --dry-run --itemize-changes) that the symlink
date/time have actually been changed. Some filesystem/OS combinations
do not support symlink time changes.
