I have done the following:
- Added -modify-window=10 (also tried 2) to both the client and server process.
- Limited attributes to only time (no owner, group, etc.)
- run the cygwin daemon with --no-detach
I also found all instances of directories who's names differed only by
case and removed them.
Still... rsync copies files for no apparent reason. I cannot understand it.
Some of the files seem to appear repeatedly, but I believe some are new each
Here is the tail of an example output, the second time in a row that it ran:
wrote 63568758 bytes read 100388 bytes 67769.18 bytes/sec
total size is 6100714293 speedup is 95.82
rsync error: partial transfer (code 23) at main.c(576)
I don't know if the error holds a clue. It seemed to complete ok.
Again, I'm using the latest rsync, copying from Solaris to Win98se with
the latest cygwin.
