Help, I am not a technical specialist.
I am running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Lucid Lynx. I have been using rsync through Grsync for at least two years with this version to backup onto an external drive. Sometime in the last couple of weeks Grsync stopped working giving the following message:
*** Lancement de la commande RSYNC :
rsync -r -t -v --progress --size-only /media/OS/Pictures/ /media/LaCie/Back-up/images/
sending incremental file list
rsync: writefd_unbuffered failed to write 4 bytes to socket [sender]: Broken pipe (32)
rsync: ERROR: cannot stat destination "/media/LaCie/Back-up/images/": Permission denied (13)
rsync error: errors selecting input/output files, dirs (code 3) at main.c(573) [Receiver=3.0.7]
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (9 bytes received so far) [sender]
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(601) [sender=3.0.7]
The external drive is mounted and works fine from the desktop for copying and deleting files and folders. The only thing I can think of is that the Linux kernal was updated since the last time Grsync worked, it is now 2.6.32-45-generic .
