I've been running a script to sync backups to another location with a delete parameter so I have the same folder on both sides.
Now to be able to withstand a cryptolocker attack I would like the sync to only delete files in the secondary folder that have a certain age.
I have seen posts about similar behavior but I don't want to just remove any file older than n days but only the ones that have been deleted from the source folder.
So if I have an old backup of something, it would remain in place.

You can run the synchronize once without the -delete switch.
And then again with -delete -filemask=*<nD.
