I haven't tried it yet, but Backup-Bouncer looks like a very useful tool for verifying backup methods (it doesn't actually verify backups, but rather the accuracy of a backup method's ability to copy OS X metadata). The latest version of rsync (v3.0.3) passes Backup-Bouncer with flying colors when tested with this command: sudo rsync -aNHAXx –protect-args –fileflags –force-change /Volumes/Src/* /Volumes/Dst/test
