it looks I'm getting a very similar error when backing up from a local drive to a NAS (Linkstation Pro) connected via SMB at "s:\". Tue Sep 23 13:37:50 2008 Exception '(5, 'SetFileSecurity', 'Zugriff verweigert')' raised of class '<class 'pywintypes.error'>':

Ok, so it looks to me like these problems with backing up from Windows to SMB are closely related to the problems which were discovered on Windows 2000. I've been able to recreate them in my test environment, and write some fixes which are now in CVS.

As I just mentioned in my Windows 2000 email, I have made a pre-release of the Windows version available: http://download.savannah.nongnu.org/releases/rdiff-backup/testing/rdiff-backup-1.2.2pre.exe

Hi Andrew,
for my problem you provided the right relief - thank you very much
Mon Oct 06 17:20:31 2008 Writing file object to s:/eigenedateien/rdiff-backup.tmp.1 Mon Oct 06 17:20:31 2008 Copying attributes from ('Beates-erste-freemind-map.mm',) to s:/eigenedateien/rdiff-backup.tmp.1 Mon Oct 06 17:20:31 2008 Setting time of s:/eigenedateien/rdiff-backup.tmp.1 to 1159806485 Mon Oct 06 17:20:31 2008 Warning: unable to set ACL on 's:/eigenedateien/rdiff-backup.tmp.1': (5, 'SetNamedSecurityInfo', 'Zugriff verweigert') Mon Oct 06 17:20:31 2008 Renaming s:/eigenedateien/rdiff-backup.tmp.1 to s:/eigenedateien/Beates-erste-freemind-map.mm
So the exception changed to a warning (obviously), which allows the processing to continue.

However - one question remains: why does it try to deal with ACLs at all? I specified the --no-acls option....

Anyways - for my purposes your change works great and makes rdiff-backup usable in my environment. Thank you very much,
