The mail becomes too long when I post the hole output...
The command was:
rsync -avz --exclude "db/" /source/ /destination/folder/ --delete
I suppose I found out now what the problem is:
the folder "/source/" is a nfs mounted partition over the network...this seems
to cause trouble. when I'm copying (with rsync) from my local hard drive the
same files as from the nfs mounted one then everything is working fine!!
Is there another possibility to use rsync without mounting the nfs partition?
How can I synchronize files from nfs??
