I do not think it's this mixed upper/lower letter case,
since I am able to rsync my data to the respective partitions finally
rsync copied 4052 out of 4053 files of 5.7GB from /home to /mnt/WS222 !!
The control check indeed gave an impossible result displaying in
five digits file amount !? ;-O
Now I am copying WinXPP's Document and Settings to LD142ntfs/WS222 !!!
Like this it seems I have gotta something running without being
experienced knowing how and what is being going !? ;-((
It seems that I do something wrong quite basically and haven't gotta to
know how and what !!!
I would like to find out how to check it well to make sure that after
... the restore works 100% too ! ;-)
Any hints and suggestions are still hot awaited and appreciated
PS: Just catched a "copy i/o error" with the USB HDD unit !
Seems it got stressed too much today and became too hot ??
Need to check and restart tomorrow again. ;-(
