Rsync Errors during backups


Good Day

I get the following errors when I do a rsunc between my Server and a 200GB USB drive

rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream code (code 12) at io.c (359)
rsync error: mkdir "/media/usbdisk4/SiteA" failed: no space on device (28)

I have checked the space on the device and I am only using 80GB of a 200GB drive so there is space on the device.

Regards

Shawn Bishop

Are there large numbers of small files? You may be out of inodes.
Are there user-quotas in effect?
"/media/usbdisk4": This is the 200GB drive?

Hi

Well it is an architect firm with a large amount of files,on average about 2 to 5 MB a file.

Yes the /media/usbdisk4 is the 200GB usb dirve

There are no user-quotas in effect.

I have updated the rsync to 2.6.8 and still get the same errors

Cheers

What type of file system do you use? Did you run fsck and what did it tell you? Is the drive maybe partiotioned? What says fdisk?

Good Day

Sorry took so long to answer, I think I have solved the problem.When the drives were plugged into the Server they were being automounted as ext2, I changed this to xfs and formatted the drives.

The Backups now run as full backups and I get about 160GB of data.

Thanks for your time, you at least put me on the right path.

Cheers
