rsync with 8bit file names?

Is the source Drobo a NAS or DAS unit? 

Also, I am guessing that the /Volumes/TV is the source for the rsync. Is it possible that the file has actually moved or been renamed?

If the Drobo (hosted) volume is the source for the rsync command, then perhaps checking the file system format of that device is also worth while?

Hope this helps. Perhaps someone else on the list has some ideas? 

I would suggest you consider compiling a recent version of rsync for your system. This should be quite straight forward on 10.10 (beta release). However, I must admit I have yet to try compiling rsync on 10.10 :

Finally, what is the actual command you are running. This information may shed some light on why the command is failing.

Hope this helps.
