sudo rsync -va --progress from the root of one external drive to a folder on another external drive. The reason is that the source drive has an error-ful NTFS and I don't have access to a Windows PC to repair the NTFS.
10 hours later it said:
sent 608725204596 bytes received 19365712 bytes 15902210.53 bytes/sec total size is 608586212274 speedup is 1.00 rsync error: some files could not be transferred (code 23) at /SourceCache/rsync/rsync-42/rsync/main.c(992) [sender=2.6.9]
I saved the entire terminal output. At the beginning, there are a few hundred
Input/output error (5) for files I actually don't need totaling roughly 2GB. OSX Finder "disk usage" tells me the source is 617 billion bytes, not 608 as in the above report.
- Does the first portion of the verbose output (building a file list) definitely say
Input/output error (5)for EVERY file that won't be copied?
code 23mean that all the files except the
Input/output error (5)ones were successfully copied?
