XP Pro on both ends. This is the error in the log
building file list ... file has vanished: "/cygdrive/F/Share/CP
IO error encountered -- skipping file deletion
Once I go into cmd and rename the folder via the short name to "McCullough
Const", it works just fine.

Which OS is running on each side of the copy? Exactly how does the
backup "fail"? This is likely to be a Windows or Cygwin idiosyncrasy.
On my computer, Windows seems to remove trailing dots and spaces from
every filename passed to a system call, so I can't create a folder
whose name ends in a period.
