It still fails at the pagefile.sys even though I tell it to exclude pagefile
and ntldr 2 different ways. I have read the manpage but I am very weak on
proper syntax. I tried with including the .sys extension as well. No dice.
Can you correct me here? Is my PATTERN correct?
This is the command I used:
steelhead:~# rsync -av --ignore-errors --force --exclude "mnt/pagefile"
--exclude "mnt/ntldr" --exclude "pagefile" --exclude "ntldr" /mnt/ /root/nt
Here is the error:
send_files failed to open /mnt/pagefile.sys: Text file busy

total size is 3606469105 speedup is 1.81
