Issue with spaces and strange characters (è)

Jan Alphenaar
Hi All,
 
I have been looking at this thing for a while now and I think it is a bug in rsync 3.1.2 version 31. But before I log a defect, I need some confirmation.
 
My rsync solution is running in Cygwin on my Windows 10 PC to my linux server. If required, I am rsyncing my files back onto my PC.
 
The directory path contains spaces in the name and the file name contains strange characters (è), for example:
 
F:\Directory Name\What is wereldorièntatie.doc
 
If I rsync this to the server without the option -s everything works as expected. I can also rsync it back to my pc as long as I do not use the option -s. It will not work in both directions if I do use the -s option.
 
Now I have the following file, note I replaced the è for a normal e.
 
F:\Directory Name\What is wereldorientatie.doc
 
For syncing this file I do need the -s option, otherwise it breaks.
 
Obviously this behavior is not consistent and breaking my script, if I want to restore my files.
 
I have tons of debugging for this, if required I can send this on the list, but I think this small description might cover it as well.
 
Can anybody say something usefull about it ?
 
Regards,
 
Jan
