Using zsync to download a newer iso file

Postby fsmithred » Thu Dec 04, 2014 3:27 pm

If you want to update your iso without downloading the whole thing, you can use zsync.

Change to the directory that contains the old iso and issue the command:
Code: Select all
zsync -i your-copy-of-old.iso http://wherever.org/new.iso.zsync
