I just started using the nifty rsnapshot utility for backups to our NAS. I really like the tool (which uses rsync and links unchanged files to keep the backup size down), but I'm running into problems copying certain links, e.g:
sudo /bin/cp -al /NAS/Backups/rsnapshot/hourly.0 /NAS/Backups/rsnapshot/hourly.1 /bin/cp: cannot create link `/NAS/Backups/rsnapshot/hourly.1/hourly.0/percival/home/stuffs/Workspaces/AppscioWork/MPF.bad/mpf-core/gtk-doc.make': No such file or directory
I'm not sure what is going on here, as the source file exists and has read permissions:
ls -l /NAS/Backups/rsnapshot/hourly.0/percival/home/stuffs/Workspaces/AppscioWork/MPF.bad/mpf-core/m4/gtk-doc.m4 lrwxrwxrwx. 1 nobody nobody 29 2009-12-30 22:38 /NAS/Backups/rsnapshot/hourly.0/percival/home/stuffs/Workspaces/AppscioWork/MPF.bad/mpf-core/m4/gtk-doc.m4 -> /usr/share/aclocal/gtk-doc.m4 ls -l /usr/share/aclocal/gtk-doc.m4 -rw-r--r--. 1 root root 1324 2009-02-24 17:50 /usr/share/aclocal/gtk-doc.m4
Is there a way to either fix this error, or have the cp command ignore the error and keep going ?
