Still failing. How do I tell rsync NOT to copy the files in the root C:\ ?
(remember I used mount -t smbfs to mount the 2000Server C drive to /mnt)
I don't want to copy these files as rsync pukes on some of them: CONFIG.SYS
NTDETECT.COM boot.ini AUTOEXEC.BAT MSDOS.SYS arcldr.exe ntldr
COMLOG.txt IO.SYS arcsetup.exe pagefile.sys
I tried this command telling it to NOT copy those files using "/*.*" :
steelhead:~# rsync -av --ignore-errors --force --exclude "/*.*" /mnt/ /root/nt
But I get this error when it hits the ntldr file so it is trying to copy
