I set up a folder c:\backup\mysite.com and set the permissions to share on my XP machine.
I then logged in using Putty.exe and used the following
myusername@torrance:~$ rsync -e ssh -av email@example.com:mysite.com /backup/mysite.com
..and got the following error..
receiving file list..done
rsync: mkdir "/backup/mysite.com" failed: no such file or directory (2)
rsync error: error in file IO (code11) at main.c(420)
Thanks for any suggestions
