I don't have any suggestions for the Linux problem. I don't believe any new release of rdiff-backup have been released since 2006 so if it was a bug then it is still a bug. There may be a patch submitted by someone in the bug database but you'll have to apply the patch yourself and build the program yourself.

For the Windows 'access denied' problem you saw try maybe resetting the permissions on the folder where the error happened:
 - Right-click the folder
 - Click properties
 - Click Security tab
 - Click Advanced
 - Check the box 'Replace all child object permissions ...'
 - Check the box 'Include inheritable permissions ...'
 - Click OK to close the dialogs

Try also going to the owner tab and setting the owner to your user.

You can also try running Process Monitor to get detail on what is happening:

Dear Sarel & Jernej,

I know it appears as an "acute accent" but what I have type is an apostrophe (at least as far as I know! :-)). And this is a file name so I do not understand why Sarel talks about typing in word. I mean nothing was typed in word. Anyway I do accept and understand that there seems to be something wrong with this character. But my point is how did it get backed up initially in the first time? and doesn't that mean that rdiff-backup can handle it somehow? at least in the initial backup though not in incremental?. My real concern is that I am talking about many gigs of data here even if I rename this file to something simple as abc there is a chance for some other file to have characters like this.

In any case if this really a case of characters that rdiff-backup cannot handle should not this be flagged as an bug?

Thank you all for attention,
bye for now,
