rsync "gags" on certain files
|Reported by:||dsuden||Owned by:||nobody|
When doing an rsync of one drive volume to another, it will get hung up occasionally, apparently as the result of a bad file, and return an error that looks like:
/boot/(whatever path)/Rapture Movement 1-Yumi Kurosawa-vbr.mp3 need to write 163764 bytes, iobuf.out.buf is only 65532 bytes. rsync error: protocol incompatibility (code 2) at io.c(599) [sender=3.1.0]
Deleting the offending and restarting rsync allows it to continue and, assuming it doesn't find any other files it dislikes, to finish all the copying.
