Thanks for the idea. I had thought of something like that some time ago
and did a hex dump of the file to look for invisible stuff; found nothing.
But here is the cat -v:
cat -v dirvish/default.conf
# Configuration file for R2D5-VirtualBox Vms (archive of /VirtualBox Vms)
# First written 18 August 2015 by dlh
# 9/7/2015 changed tree entry to '/home/household/VirtualBox\ VMs/'
#do local disk copy
expire: +4 weeks
tree: '/home/household/VirtualBox\ VMs/'
Using this .conf, I still get an error:
rsync: change_dir "/home/household//'/home/household/VirtualBox VMs/'"
failed: No such file or directory (2)
I was asked earlier to look at the summary action line. It does look
suspicious to me, although I am not familiar with the syntax:
ACTION: rsync -vrltH --delete --stats -D --numeric-ids -pgo
Is that a spurious forward slash just before /mnt/ba...?
And another question: Is it possible to use a symlink to avoid the issue
of the space in the directory name?
Thanks for you interest in this issue.
