> Hello,
> 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.

A guess: Could it be related to the manifest issue?
