The steps you outlined are rather involved. Since the rsync mailing
list pegs it as a file system level error, maybe we should confirm
Try a cp on the file in question, does that fail? Can you move it
aside, delete it, restore it from a known good source? What about the
file is bad?
Maybe the destination drive is fine, and it is only a file that needs
remapping. Maybe not. But I think worth looking into.
For example, and I should bring this up on the rsync list. I have a
sparse image that rsync will get to 99% of copying and then fail with
error. This causes lbackup or plain rsync commands to halt.
If I pre-copy the sparse image, it is seen as up to date, and left
alone. If I slighky alter the source sparse bundle, a few new bands of
delta are copied, and everything is fine.
It's strange, as I can scp, AFP, or FTP the disc image and it will
always work. Using rsync as the transport and it always fails. The
hard part is it is huge, and takes 20 minutes to test each time.
I think it's worth it to pin the file down, as if it's similar to my
case, rsync should not bail out, but skip the file, and continue,
logging or reporting the error.
I will try to post my issue in more detail later today.
