rsync operation not permitted SSFS Volume

Asked by T McCool on 2009-12-30

I have a SSFS mounted volume and when using rsync (ex: rsync -av /home/me/ /ssfsvolume) to copy files to this volume I receive the following error message:

rsync: rename "/home/me/.foo.txt.jUTKCx" -> "foo.txt": Operation not permitted (1)

It appears to be related to some sort of permission problems related to either SSFS or rsync in handling the file. In this case it appears rsync has named a temporary file to transmit the file and then it attempts to rename it to the correct name once it is copied completely when it receives the error message.

I don't know if the problem is some sort of compatibility with rsync or SSFS - a permission problem or a configuration problem.

Any suggestions?
