List of rsync error codes

Unread post by BJDeriso » Thu Jun 18, 2015 11:41 pm

Does anyone have (or know where to obtain) a simple list of the remote sync error codes and their meanings? I'm getting really fed up with Synology's unresponsiveness and vague troubleshooting info. :evil:

Why isn't this information a sticky??
