Hi, Steve--

Heres’ my output:

localhost:volumes jeffrey$ chdir "/Volumes/Jeffrey Ellis\?\#200\#231s iPhone
-bash: chdir: command not found

Also, when I try it with —itemize changes instead of vv:

/usr/local/bin/rsync -a --itemize-changes --protect-args 'Jeffrey Ellis’s
iPhone (Root)'/ 'Macintosh HD'/Users/jeffrey/Downloads/iphone_backup

all the files come up as:

rsync: readdir("/Volumes/Jeffrey Ellis?\#200\#231s iPhone
(Root)/Applications/"): No such file or
directory (2)
