rsync IO error encountered - skipping file deletion, how to tell where error is?

When I run a rsync with -v I get the following messages before it starts listing all the files its actually doing. My question is, how do I determine where the "IO error" is, and if it's on the source or destination server?

building file list ... rsync: opendir "/data/.TemporaryItems/folders.502" failed: Permission denied (13)

I just deleted that folder it said permission denied about, then it worked fine. I bet an OSX machine made that folder.
