This is how one might back up their Bitcoin Core data directories in order to save time on syncing in the future:



rsync -av --delete chainstate "$local_d"
rsync -av --delete blocks "$local_d"

Sometimes backups to a remote location take quite a long time, and so there may a lag of many block in between rsync -av --delete chainstate "$local_d" and rsync -av --delete blocks "$local_d". Will Bitcoin Core sync seamlessly when being fed chainststate/ directory backup that corresponds to a different block height than blocks/ directory?
