- Authentication-results: sourceware.org; auth=none
I have a USB drive with 100,000's of thousands of files I put on it
from one PC. I've built that dataset up over a couple years.
I moved the USB drive to a different PC and I'm trying to rsync it to
99.9% of the data seems to have made its way from one drive to the other.
But I got a few permission denied messages when reading files off of
the source drive.
I really don't need anything but the equivalent of 666 permissions for
the source drive files.
I know linux well, but I have screwed up Windows permissions once too often.
Is there a command I should run in Windows or cygwin to grant my user
read/write permission to all of the files?
Or I can parse the rsync log file I created and look for the handful
of files that failed with permission denied.
