Hello all,

I'm trying to set up rdiff-backup to copy a set of directories (eventually, my entire Linux system) from several ext3 partitions to a single FAT32 external USB drive (so I can recover files easily to other operating systems). I'm using Ubuntu 8.04 and rdiff-backup 1.1.15, but when I run the following command:

Hi Elliott,

It looks like you have a space at the end of the folder named "SSHRC Application 2009-2010 ".

Spaces at the *end* of a file or folder name are not allowed on FAT filesystems (although they are allowed elsewhere in the name). If you remove the space from the end of the name of that folder, you'll be fine.

I'll look into adding support for escaping spaces at the end of the filename so that rdiff-backup can workaround this FAT32 limitation.
