filesystem quoting on this filesystem is not well supported. Once we get python3 support working everything will change. postponing for now.

Moreover: the filesystem for source data is ext4.

The target filesystem is VFAT.

Wed 14 Oct 2015 06:58:08 AM UTC, original submission:  


I'm running Synology DS214play with Debian chroot. Inside chroot I have mounted the /homes filesystem where my 800GB data is, and /volumeUSB2 device, where I have WD Passport 1TB external drive. I'm attempting to backup 800GBs to 1TB drive.

I use DSM 5.2, and inside of Debian chroot I've installed rdiff-backup.

I run it like this:

diff-backup --exclude-symbolic-links -v5 /home/wkoszek rdiff-backup.20151013

root@wkoszek_nas:/mnt/volumeUSB2# mount
proc on /proc type proc (rw,relatime)
sys on /sys type sysfs (rw,relatime)
none on /dev type devtmpfs (rw,nosuid,noexec,relatime,size=355860k,nr_inodes=88965,mode=755)
none on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,nosuid,noexec,relatime,gid=5,mode=620)
/dev/mapper/vg1000-lv on /home type ext4 (rw,relatime,user_xattr,synoacl,barrier=0,journal_checksum,data=writeback,jqfmt=vfsv0,usrjquota=aquota.user,grpjquota=aquota.group)
/dev/sdt1 on /mnt/volumeUSB2 type vfat (rw,relatime,uid=1024,gid=100,fmask=0000,dmask=0000,allow_utime=0022,codepage=default,iocharset=default,shortname=mixed,quiet,utf8,flush,errors=remount-ro)

I get Invalid argument failure, since rdiff-backup doesn't like the filename. Attached are the details.
