Hmm, it seems I need help again. I am calling again rsync with the following
options :
rsync -rvtO --del --files-from=/cygdrive/C/Programme/cwRsync/rsync.txt
--modify-window=3 stefan at

rsync.txt just contains one single line :

rsync then outputs a list of the command line options and the following:
rsync error: syntax or usage error (code 1) at options.c(1418) [client=2.6.9

How should I list E:\Bücher & Comics in rsync.txt ? As /cygdrive/E/Bücher &
Comics or should I just use single or double quotes ?
