I am using dirvish (1.2) to backup a desktop computer to a eSATA drive on
the same computer.  OS is ubuntu 14.04.

The system has been running fine for two vaults.  I recently added a third
vault.  I cannot get this latest to run.

household at R2D5:~$ sudo dirvish --vault R2D5-VboxVMs --init

dirvish R2D5-VboxVMs:default error (23) -- partial transfer
dirvish error: branch /mnt/backup/dirvish-bank/R2D5-VboxVMs:default image
2015-09-04-Fri-10:41:44 failed

On the backup drive the following was created:

household at R2D5:/mnt/backup/dirvish-bank/R2D5-VboxVMs$ sudo ls -l
total 16
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 3195 Sep  4 10:41 log
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1165 Sep  4 10:41 rsync_error
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  628 Sep  4 10:41 summary
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Sep  4 10:41 tree

rsync_error contains:

rsync: change_dir "/home/household/VirtualBox\ VMs" failed: No such file or
directory (2)
rsync error: some files/attrs were not transferred (see previous errors)
(code 23) at main.c(1183) [sender=3.1.0]

ls -l /home/household/VirtualBox\ VMs
total 2440240
drwxrwxr-x 3 household household       4096 Aug 31 09:06 Win 2k sp2
-rw------- 1 household household 2498797568 Aug 31 09:06 Win2kSP2 Clone.vdi

When implementing this vault I found that I needed to double escape the
space in the folder name in the .conf:


client: R2D5

expire: +4 weeks

tree: /home/household/VirtualBox\\ VMs/

I have tried leaving off the final backslash to no effect.

I have looked at the text in client: in the above .conf; it is identical to
those in the other two working vaults.

I would like some hints as to where to look for a solution to this issue.
