Author: Michael Date: To: PLUG Subject: Re: rsync problem
thanks Matt. I ignored the squirrel this time!
disk not plugged in. there is a seagate expansion drive directory in /media.
after further investigation it seems rsync backed the seagate expansion
drive to /media and not to /media/Seagate\ Expansion\ Drive. Would you say
rmdir and things should function normally? how should I do it? ' rmdir -r
/media/Seagate\ Expansion\ Drive'?
