first, a big THANKS to everyone who is involved in developing rsync.
This great tool has simplified my life so much.
I use rsync to synchronize some SMB-Shares to an external firewire-disk.
So I mount the shares into my filesystem (read-only), mount the external
disk and rsync them.
Unfortunately I've some troubles relating the "file has
vanished"-message. I get this message when I try to mirror the whole
content of the smb-shares to the fw-disk, which I already synced before.
When I mount an empty disk and try to rsync, the error doesn't occure.
As I read in the mailinglist archive, the message appeares, when a file
is modified/deleted after the "building file list" process has finished.
In my case, the error is showed up by synchronizing files that were not
touched by any user in the last months. I also wonder, why these files
are not mirrored on the external disk, although I have adequate permissions.
I'm running Debian 3.1 sarge with rsync 2.6.5
Maybe, somebody can help me.
Thanks so much
