Really, when you get above half a million files rsync starts to choke, and requires a considerable amount of memory, which causes my server to swap out, thus trashing the performance of my server and causing the backups to take much longer than they needed to. With my R1Soft solution I am able to take backups on my busy servers on the hour, with little overhead. On my less buys servers with less power users I am able to take backups every 15 minutes. I think one of the big differences is the deltas are tracked in real time were as rsync will need to re-index on every backup. -Zeek

Be careful when a loop exits to the same place from side and bottom.
