Provide latest version of rsync

I’m partially apologising for duplication as this has been posted as an idea in the My Cloud ideas form, but I believe keeping rsync up-to-date is a critical thing. In the past I’ve has some annoying issues where rsync would fail and not synchronise certain files.

WD should put in some additional effort to release firmware updates that at least provide up-do-date utilities.

With the EX100 and DL100 NASes the utilities are on a read-only area so the user can’t perform updates themselves like can be attempted on the My Cloud NASs and lesser.

Just curious. :slight_smile: Thanks.

It would be really nice to backup a My Cloud Mirror to a My Cloud (not-mirror) with rsync! Please add this or similar functionality to both devices.
