Question about cygwin + rsync and file permissions
Thu Sep 16 19:06:00 GMT 2010
I am trying to copy files from a Linux machine to Windows using rsync. I am using rsync 3.0.7 and cygwin 1.7.5.
The source files on the linux machine are all owned by root:root with mode 0755. When I copy them with the following command:
rsync -clrtv --chmod=ugo=rwX rsync://<user>@linux/path/to/files /cygdrive/d/path/to/destination
I get the files, but the user who performs the copy ends up with strange permissions on them. There are two 'special' permissions entries, one with a list of denied permissions and the other with a list of permitted ones.
Traverse Folder / Execute File
List Folder / Read Data
Read Extended Attributes
Create Files / Write Data
Create Folders / Append Data
Write Extended Attributes
The result is that I can delete the files and change their permissions, but I can't actually read them. I am confused about this because I think the --chmod=ugo=rwX clause should leave the files readable.
What am I doing wrong?
