using rsync - one of the folders in path has spaces???


i am using rsync to back up folders on my ibook to a fc2 box on my home network. The problem is the folder i am trying to back up is called "Microsoft User Data" so the folder has spaces in it. The terminal cant read this properly because of the spaces in the name.

Consider renaming the directory.

You should be able to reference the directory with spaces by single quoting (e.g., 'Microsoft User Data').

And if you try
"Microsoft\ User \ Data"
or
"Microsoft\x20User\x20Data"

spoke to soon yes the above did fix the problem with the spacing in the folder name but when i try to add it to my .bashrc file to make an alias out of it, it gets screwed up again.. Do you know a way around this.

How did you make alias in your ~/.bashrc?
for ssh it quite simple :
ssh-keygen -t rsa
--accept default, press enter

Enter passphrase (empty for no passphrase):
--leave empty, press enter

Enter same passphrase again:
--leave empty, press enter

The id_rsa.pub is your public key,this is the file you need to copy to remote host.
scp ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub remotemachine:.ssh/authorized_keys2

Now after that you should login into the remote host by just :
ssh remotehost
without password

It is not difficult you have a hidden directory named .ssh, inside there is your public key file named id_rsa.pub you take this one and copy it in the .ssh directory of the remote host and rename it authorized_keys2.
