strace -f -o rsync.strace ./rsync ...

Then post the last 100 lines or so of the rsync.strace file, and I
should be able to see what is happening.  For more about the strace
command, see its man page.

Incidentally, see if you have enough disk space to hold the batch file.
If not, that would explain the error you are getting.
