When using rsync and needing to output a log file, what is the correct command?


--log-file=~/desktop/test.log       ?


If this is correct for output of log file onto the desktop, then my next question is does test.log have to already exist or will it be created?


what's the best practice of doing this?

    --log-file will create the log file (assuming you have permission to create the file in the specified directory).


    Have you tried it and it didn't work?  If so, did you get any error messages?
