rsync-backup of RPi4 not working. Mouse/keyb dead

Hi, I tested to make a backup of the whole system (RPI4) with rsync. I put it all on a ext4 USB-stick. Then I took another SD-card with the same(?) partitions and formatted sda2 where the OS was (perhaps wrong name) to ext4 ( I didn't overwrite /BOOT). Then I made a rsync back from the memorystick t...

Is it possible to install Timeshift to latest Raspbian?
I search for a equivalent and found http://rsnapshot.org/. I must test it on a Raspberry Pi.

Re: udev doesn't run script

Yes. It was a timeout. Very good! Thanx! Funny...

BTW, a normal 'cd ~/xxx' must be '/home/[username]/xxx" sometimes?
The script had cd ~/sw but I needed to replace it with /home/myname/sw to get it work.

In the "real" case, no extra handles exists besides the one that are created by the script that makes the last call. Same script unmount it. That's my plan. :-)

Re: Trouble; Script calling another script

I'll get back with complete documentation later.

Why I didn't provide everything is because I hadn't the actual computer here and I thought the problem was depending on some obvious stuff that I missed.
