I am trying to rsync using the command found on page one, but constantly get this error:


My commandrsync -aE --delete ~/Desktop /Volumes/WD250/BU
rsync: -E: unknown option
rsync error: syntax or usage error (code 1) at main.c(1023)


What am I doing wrong? I noticed in the rsync man that it uses -e with the --delete flag, not -E, but when I use that, I get mixed results. Files copy over, but with don't keep any settings such as what program opens them, and applications come out useless. Any help appreciated!
