Why not just use this command:
rdiff-backup /cygdrive/t/data address@hidden::/smb/backup/armandIf this doesn't work, maybe there is a problem running rdiff-backup to a samba-mounted volume on the rdiff-backup server? Try backing up to e.g. address@hidden::/home/armand/backup
Also if the destination is Windows-based this can cause problems - generally rdiff-backup is more reliable backing up to Linux.
I use the rdiff-backup.exe program (which doesn't require Cygwin, though I do use Cygwin too) for backups from Windows.

Hi, as a beginner, I'm probably missing something... I'm trying to backup data under t:\data from my cygwin windows machine (called "armand") to a Debian server (called "jana"). I created a file `rdiff-backup-to-jana.sh` with one line: rdiff-backup --include-globbing-filelist include.lst \ /cygdrive address@hidden::/smb/backup/armand Another file `include.lst` contains two lines: /cygdrive/t/data/** - ** I run it like this from a Windows command prompt: T:\data\path>bash rdiff-backup-to-jana.sh /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/rdiff_backup/SetConnections.py:148: DeprecationWarning: os.popen2 is deprecated. Use the subprocess module. stdin, stdout = os.popen2(remote_cmd) address@hidden's password: T:\data\path> That is, it asks for a password, then works some time and everything seems okay. On jana it has created a directory /smb/backup/armand containing one subdirectory rdiff-backup-data. But I cannot believe that this is a backup of my data because it is only 68KB address@hidden:/smb/backup$ du -h armand 4.0K armand/rdiff-backup-data/increments 64K armand/rdiff-backup-data 68K armand address@hidden:/smb/backup$ I guess that it is just the extra reverse diffs. But where is the copy of my data? What am I missing? Thanks in advance for any hints.
