I have not gotten to the bottom of a related problem, but I have an error of a file name which contains the degree symbol. As I have more time I will try to report the exact error. rdiff-backup does successfully mirror the file, but there are error messages which I seem to recall also report "No such file or directory".

I'm new to rdiff-backup and very enthousiastic about it. I use it to make
nightly backups of the Windows 2000 fileserver of my company. I've installed
a Slackware 10.0 computer with a few 200 GB harddisks, and it will access the
Windows 2000 server with Samba.

Unfortunately, some files returns errors:

UpdateError gedeelde data/ICT/klanten/_ niet actief/DVA/Scenario's voor de IT
omgeving bij DVA.doc [Errno 2] No such file or directory

I've read the man pages, and the --windows option is meant to backtup TO a
Windows filesystem, not FROM a Windows filesystem to a Linux filesystem like
I do.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance,

I don't, really.

But from looking at that filename, I'm guessing that there are ?dutch?
special characters in the filename, which perhaps rdiff-backup is
choking on- could you try to rename the file and see if that is indeed
the problem.
