http://serverfault.com – Running in cygwin rsync -vrtz --password-file=c:\cygwin\secret --delete /cygdrive/d/Data user@xx.xx.xx.xx::modulename But getting rsync: could not open password file c:cygwinsecret: No such file or directory (2) rsync error: syntax or usage error (code 1) at /home/lapo/package/rsync-3.0.9-1/src/rsync-3.0.9/authenticate.c(166) [sender=3.0.9] I have tried 'chmod 600 secret' and changing the owner/group in many ways but rsync still cannot seem to see this file. Any ideas? (HowTos)
