The problem appears to be with some non-ASCII characters. What filesystems are you backing up to/from? Try with the switches --null-separator and/or --override-chars-to-quote, or if you are already using them, try without!

Hello everyone!

Since this weekend (and i also remember that problem to have occured
earlier) i have a problem with rdiff-backup.
When I try to backup my files (with the same command a always used) i
get the following error (see below). At first a few notes on my
behavior: I normally backup all my files with the command see below.
Because that did not work with the following response:

address@hidden Benji]# rdiff-backup '/home/Benji'
Previous backup seems to have failed, regressing destination now.
^[[D^[[DSpecialFileError .gdesklets/sockets/%3A0.0 Socket error:

incomplete multibyte or wide character:

I then tried the following 15. from:


But also that did not help.

I then tried to make a whole new backup of my files with the following

address@hidden Desktop]# rdiff-backup '/home/Benji'
ListError .gtk-bookmarks/.gvfs [Errno 13] Permission denied:
OSError while renaming
to /media/Banjos_Wissen/Banjos_Backup/Downloads/330 - Der Kampf der
UpdateError Downloads/rdiff-backup.tmp.40180 [Errno 84] Invalid or
incomplete multibyte or wide character
That is the present problem, but I really like the simplicity of
rdiff-backup and don´t wanna change so please help me.

Thx. to you - Benjamin D.
