I am using rysnc via Cygwin on Windows 7 Professional.
$ rsync -version rsync version 3.1.2 protocol version 31
I am trying to set up a backup using rsync to a USB drive.
I ran the following command:
rsync -v -rplt "/cygdrive/k/Email/" "/cygdrive/d/Backup Files/k/"
[ I got the same result with "-rlt" flags, I added the "p" flag to instruct rsync to copy the persmissions"].
This seems to work fine, however when I try to look at the results I get permission denied messages:
$ ls /cygdrive/d/Backup\ Files/k ls: cannot open directory '/cygdrive/d/Backup Files/k': Permission denied
I cannot access via Windows Explorer either.
If I unplug the USB drive and connect to another PC I can see the files.
