"-A" and "-X" to the "RsyncArgs" list. When backups are run the log files 
contains: "Got fatal error during xfer (fileListReceive failed)". Removing the 
"-A" and the "-X" allows the backup to proceed without errors. Is there another 
'switch' that needs to be added to allow the "-A" and "-X" to function without 
error? Anyone familiar with including acl and attr file permissions during 
rsync backup (and restore.)? --
