|Subject:||[rdiff-backup-users] rdiff for windows error but path not too long|
|Date:||Thu, 27 Jan 2011 14:58:19 +0100|
I try to use rdiff-backup (the downloadable .exe) to copy local windows folders to a shared folder on another windows machine.
I am using a batch file for each of the shared folders, e.g.:
c:\windows\rdiff-backup.exe "i:/personal" "g:/bkp/personal"
It works without any problems.
In the beginning I had problems with long paths and received the known error messages like:
File "rdiff_backup\Main.pyc", line 302, in error_check_Main
File "rdiff_backup\Main.pyc", line 322, in Main
I shortened the paths and everything worked, except one folder, which lead to the same error message.
Verbose 9 did not help to solve the problem, It just didn’t create the copy.
So I started to copy each of the three subfolder in a single line in the batch file and everything worked, except one folder. So I made a line for each of the 19 subfolders in there and found the troublemaker:
rdiff seems not to be able to create that directory, although I recursively reset all access rights to correct values which worked for all the other folders.
I solved the problem by creating the folder manually, now rdiff doesn’t complain anymore.
I am not sure if it has to do with the two leading underscores. I have other folders with two leading underscores, but these are not in the third level but in the second level, e.g.:
They make no trouble.
I hope this error report is helpful.
