grsync not deleting files on ubuntu machine?

+2 votes

We have changed disks recently. Using 2 different disks for storage and backups - a USB to back up a local non-boot disk - all disks ext4.

Both disks have a 'lost+found' folder, root permissions with Ubuntu 12.04. Properties for both disks say 'some contents unreadable'. I'm assuming that's because of the 'lost+found' folder, but please tell me if there's more to it...

In grsync, I have 'delete on destination' checked. When I backup the local disk to USB, it does copy newer files, but does not delete older files. At the start of the progress window it says 'permission denied' for the 'lost+found' folder. Next line: 'IO error - skipping file deletion'. And indeed it does no deletions for any file.

How can I get it to delete files that are no longer on the source/local disk?

Also, I recently copied the old local disk [1G] to the new 2G local disk mentioned above - I was running out of space. Is it possible that this copy did NOT copy all the files? I just assumed it would and didn't check.

I am using Ubuntu 14.04 and facing problem with ubuntu? On my machine Skype starts, asks to log in and then presents its list of connections. However after a couple of moments the list of connections gets
"inactive" (greys out) and finally disappears.

In the crash window that then pops up I see that something with seems to be amiss.

Any idea what I can do to fix the problem and where do I find the info that is in the "crash report window" so I
could add it to this email if needed?

Yesterday, all application sounds for one of my user account stopped. I still get the startup sound for that account and on the other user accounts the sound works OK. It's obvious that it's not the hardware.

I am using the Mint desktop. I checked to see if the sound volume was turned down and it is at 100%. I also checked to see if the sound was muted, it's not muted. I checked under system /preferences / sound and everything seems to be OK. When I tested the speakers using the sound utility I do get sounds. Since I get the startup sound, the speakers work when tested (using the affected user account, and the other user accounts work fine.

Only the applications (Firefox, VLC, etc.) seem affected. I checked the applications but I doubt it is an application setting because all applications are affected. Any suggestions on where else to look?

I am using Fedora 20, subversion 1.8.5-2. In ~/.subversion/config I have

enable-auto-props = yes

*.xml = svn:eol-style=native; svn:keywords=Author Date Id Revision

When I do

svn add my.xml
svn: E200009: Can't set 'svn:eol-style': file '/data/mysvn/trunk/my.xml' has binary mime type property

But with Ubuntu 12.10/subversion 1.7.5-1 svn add my.xml works just fine.

Any idea why the behavior is different?
