i make my backups always with rsync on the mmc.

but with the real rsync, not with busybox.

here is my script:

#!/bin/sh -x
cd /
rsync -avulH --del --exclude=/home/root/Maps --exclude=boot/*
--exclude=Maps/* --exclude=sicherung/* --exclude=media/* --exclude=sys/*
--exclude=dev/* --exclude=proc/* * /media/disk/shr/

echo errors are in /media/disk/sicherung/fehler.txt
