This looks like a problem I only found this weekend.  Do you have WSL
activated?  If so, can you please do two things:

First, install the latest developer snapshot from  This is essential!

Second, check with `lsattr' if all or some of the directories you're
trying to rsync have the "case-sensitivity" flag set, e.g.

$ lsattr -d foo
---------n-C foo

That means the flag is set.  Remove the flag recursively, e.g.

$ chattr -R -C foo

Now try rsync again.

Here's what I found two days ago:

The developer snapshot is needed so that Cygwin does not create
case-sensitive directories by default.  I'd released 3.0.2 with
this patch already but I'm still waiting for a report to a certain.
