I have recently discovered that my music directory and the micro sd card that's in my hand held media player (iBasso DX50) are not in sync, I don't have any idea how that could have happened. There are songs in both my music directory that are that are not on the sd card as well as a few songs that are on my sd card that are not in my music library. I've always used rsync either directly or through the program LuckBackup to keep everything in sync so again I don't know how this could have happened. Note that my music library is ext4 and my sd card is fat32. What should my rsync command look like to make both of these directories mirror each other with nothing deleted on either end? I know I could google this but it's my music library, I'm very carful with it and I would feel better with a human being holding my hand here. Also I haven't been using Linux as my primary OS for a while now, every since by SSD got corrupted :(

I think you've battled this before. My encounters with this has always been problems with filenames that are OK on the server but not allowed on FAT32. To sort this out I have to find a title that didn't sync and then see if some FAT32 rule was broken.
