Rsync to exFAT SD-card

I thought I share this, as it took me a while to successfully copy from ext4 to exFAT using Rsync. This ensures untouched files aren’t copied each time, and will delete superfluous entities in the destination.

rsync -hvrltD --delete --modify-window=1 --progress <source folder> <sd-card>

I use Sync Back Pro on Windows to get the same effect , cuts down backup time dramatically

I should add that apart from lacking a permissions model seen on EXT4 etc., exFAT also rounds the timestamp, so it is inevitable that source and destination appear to be different.
