I have two external HDDs which I want to contain the same data. I use one as a master image and then every so often I mirror it to the other HDD using rclone. All of the data copied over fine originally but when I try to do a sync of the master to the backup it updates the modification time of the backup files, as they’re all out by 1 second. This isn’t so bad, but it isn’t actually updating the times, and so if I run the same sync command again straight away it will go through and “update” all of the modification times again, but again without actually changing anything.
I have ran the command using the “-vv” parameter and I can see it thinks the times are different and that it updates. I saved them to a file but they’re on my other PC so haven’t copied them here - I can provide them if needed.
If this is a bug, is there any way I can get around it?
