Description Robert Stalzer 2006-08-18 23:54:50 UTC
I am using rsync with shh to backup remote servers. One system I am backing up wants to create a huge file, greater than 125GB. the hard drive is only 80GB, and the backup is usually about 35GB. I am not having this problem with any other system I am backing up. 

My backup server uses SME 7.0 server which is based on Centos 4.3, and the server I am backing up uses sme 6.01 which is based on redhat 7.6 (I think). The system had been working properly until a couple of days ago. Need a push in some direction.

Sorry for posting. File size was misreported on remote server. No rsync problem existed.
