Problem on XP with --delete option

I'm experiencing a problem on rsync with the --delete option.


Server = Mandrake Linux 9.2 running rsync daemon

Client = Windows XP workstation running cygwin + rsync2.5.1 combined with ssh.
All this implemented conform the website of Robert Scholten (
Every thing seems to work fine exept for the --delete option.

The rsync says: "IO error encountered - skipping file deletion"

The transfer of files works fine, no I/O errors at all. Do you guys have any suggestion for me ?

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards
