rsync + FAT32 filesystem

Found a useful nugget in the rsync FAQ: if your destination filesystem when using rsync is a FAT32 filesystem you need to add the --modify-window=1 option due to problems with the modified times on FAT32. A working example would be:
rsync \
--progress \
--delete \
--verbose \
--archive \
--modify-window=1 \
/path/to/source/dir/ \
As always, remember to be careful about those trailing slashes!
