character differences messing with rsync

view full story

http://www.linuxforums.org – I am running an rsync script and getting a number of file has vanished errors I have looked for a commonality and I think I've found one. It appears that the files have a strange character in the names. These files are on a Samba file share. When I few the files via Windows on the Samba shares I see 115596B6_R55_.tff when I get on the server and look at the files using dir 115596B6* I see 115596B6_R55\370.tff when I use ls -l I see 115596B6_R55?.tff Does anyone have any idea of what is going on? Is there anything with rsync I can do to alleviate missing these files? Anyone have a script where I can find files with this character? Anyone know where this character originated? I'm getting concerned that we may have a number of files that aren't getting backed up because of this or some other character which is being used. (HowTos)
