Running rsync from a drobo to fetch remote files, rsync create a wierdly named folder "_2X68O~Y" which contains the fetched files and folders. Under sh the folder has an empty name.

the commandine, run via a .sh script:

/mnt/DroboNAS/Shares/DroboApps/rsync/rsync -av --delete-during --exclude Recycle\ Bin rsync:// /mnt/DroboNAS/Shares/Backup/mtl/shares/montreal_bati/

so I'm getting /mnt/DroboNAS/Shares/Backup/mtl/shares/montreal_bati/_2X68O~Y/[files / folders]

rsync version 3.0.7 protocol version 30

I used the same script on a FreeNAS box (written in komodo edit) and I had the same issue. I think it's a charset issue. I deleted it (on the freenas box) and rewrote it using putty/nano and it works.
