Adrian –


Is /backup1 a directory on ?


If so, what happens if you add a trailing slash after backup1 ?


   rsync -t testfile.txt adrian@


HTH ...


-- kjh

Hi all,

I am having trouble using rsync that is available with MinGW.  My command is:

rsync -t testfile.txt adrian@

The result is:

adrian@'s password: <I enter my password here>
rsync: mkstemp "/.backup1.IC8E65" failed: Permission denied (13)
rsync error: some files/attrs were not transferred (see previous errors) (code 2
3) at /usr/src/rsync/rsync-3.0.8/main.c(1052) [sender=3.0.8]

This works fine when I use cygwin.  Any idea why this doesn't work under MinGW?
