    Rsync to CIFS share causing remote machine crash.


    I have a script set up at work to rsync my work directory on my Ubuntu laptop to my work Windows desktop, which is connected to the laptop via a CIFS share.

    Lately, it will get about halfway through the rsync before the Windows machine blue screens and crashes. I'm not sure if this is an issue with Linux/Rsync or Windows, so I'm trying to solve at least one half of it.

    Has anyone else seen this?

    rsync -auvh --exclude 'HY-MA-MI' work/ /media/work

    Windows Blue Screen? Yes I've seen it several times. Try rsyncing to an Ubuntu desktop or to Ubuntu One on the net.

    Check your log files in /var/log. Check for weird file names for any files created in the last week. Use the --stats switch, and there may be other switches to increase the verbosity of rsync so you can pinpoint where it is failing.
