Pardon my misunderstanding, but it still says that,
"....files that have changed in size or in *last-modified time*...."

Or, if not rsync I wish to fulfill my requirement.
Is there any other utility that would do the job for me?

I take regular backup for the files and folders. I had been doing it
Or maybe I should think of making a bash myself?

Please suggest.
