Re: using rsync with Win32/UNC pathnames?

2008/03/07 20:47:05 [13024] rsync: readlink
"/AppData/Local/Application Data/Application Data/Application
Data/Application Data/Application Data/Application Data/Application
pplication Data/Application Data/Application

(in jabley) failed: File name too long (91)

But using the current snapshot, rsync (2.6.9) has been fine with the
long path names. There are some issues (hey, it's a snapshot!) which
I'll report separately, but I'm pretty happy!

Hmm, I'm not happy any more.

For me, rsync.exe 2.6.9-2 from Cygwin can't read long path names with the latest cygwin1.dll snapshot.

cwRsync (3.0.0) however, can read long filenames with the latest cygwin1.dll snapshot.

And there is more to it: neither rsync.exe 2.6.9-2 from Cygwin nor cwRsync (3.0.0) can read long path names when rsync is started as a Windows service (cygrunsrv 1.34-1).

False alarm...

It will fail i.e. with --protocol=28 (used by BackupPC).

It will not fail if protocol is omitted - rsync 3.0.0 uses protocol 30.
