: Warning: Permanently added the RSA host key for IP address '79.240.248.22' to the list of known hosts.

This tells me that it's the first time you've connected to the system
you're backing up? Ah, it's a german subscriber line, which gets a new
IP every day, right?

: rsync: write failed on "/mnt/hdb/backup/Projekte/20120106-10:33/tree/2009/1_LST/091017/Firma_DAT/120103_CD_Bestand_Mehltheuer/zur Info/1940005304-5646135-PLA-06-000-1.tif": No space left on device (28)

Well, the message is fairly clear: no space left...

One thing that now occurs to me is that perhaps you've run out of
inodes?

I don't think that's the problem. It is limited, but it's usually
something like 1024 bytes. The limit depends on your OS. Anyway, the
message would be different ("cannot create file: filename too long" or
similar).
