DO NOT REPLY [Bug 5554] New: File has vanished for files withforeign/unicode characters
Summary: File has vanished for files with foreign/unicode
OS/Version: Windows XP
I am using rsync inside cygwin to transfer files from my old PC to my new PC. I
have mapped the old PC's shares to drive letters, and then within cygwin I am
running the following command:
rsync -av /cygdrive/z/ /cygdrive/e/
Where z is the mapped drive, and e is the local drive where I'm copying the
Now I've copied ~500GB of files with this command without a problem, however a
few files refuse to be transfer always failing with the error: "file has
The remote drive is not being altered, and both computers have synced clocks.
One thing I notice is that the file names always have foreign/Unicode
characters in them. The output I receive in the cygwin console is this:
file has vanished: "/cygdrive/z/mp3/A/Apocalyptica/Reflections/06 - Cohkka.mp3"
file has vanished: "/cygdrive/z/mp3/D/Dir en grey/six Ugly/06 - Byo??Shin

symbols between the "Byo" and "Shin"
"Z:\mp3\F\FinnTroll\Nattfodd\Finntroll_-_Nattfцdd-back.jpg" (Square looking u
Some foreign characters do work, for example in the same
Apocalyptica\Reflections directory there is "10 - Cortége.mp3" (accent on the
I'm unsure if this is a Rsync bug, or a cygwin bug. Both file systems are NTFS,
and both machines are running Windows XP. The Cygwin was freshly installed
yesterday with nothing altered except to add rsync.
I hope this is a real bug that can easily be fixed. Until then I can easily
copy the few files which rsync fails at.
