That error is coming from the destination filesystem.  What happens if
you copy the files to another place on the destination machine and then
locally (using rsync or another tool) to the directory that is giving
the errors?  If the /EDrive/testfile.edb path is on a network
filesystem, see if the network filesystem has logged any errors or try
taking it out of the loop by rsyncing directly to the machine holding
the destination files.
