I am guessing your are backing up between two systems via the network. Please 
correct me if required.

If you do not need to preserve the ACL permissions then a simple option is to 
upgrade to the latest alpha build of LBackup (please note that this link is not 
permanent) :

This alpha release (will be part of the next beta release) and includes an 
option to disable ACL preservation on Darwin systems via the configuration file.

Once you have updated you may add the following quoted lines to your 
configuration file to disable the ACL preservation : 

> # Disable ACL preservation, only availible on darwin with custom rsync 
> (YES/NO)
> disable_acl_preservation="YES" # (If enabled ACL's will not be preserved in 
> the backup)

Another possibility is to bind the machine performing the backups with the same 
directory as the systems which are being backed up. 

I have posted a message to the rsync mailing list regarding the reporting of 
files : <http://www.mail-archive.com/rs...@lists.samba.org/msg25658.html>

If you want to be able to track down the errors more quickly in the future then 
I am hopeful that someone on the rsync mailing list will be able to assist. I 
will let you know what as soon as there is a responses from the rsync mailing 

If anyone has any suggestions regarding the ACL issue then please let me know. 
Input with regards comments or possible solutions are certainly welcome.

Thank you for your message. I will post back to this list once I have more
