-For some reason gocryptfs seems to generate some files like '' gocryptfs.longname.*.name'' that are there when rsync scans the directory but vanish before rsync can sync them. this leads to rsync complaining about vanished files. when i mount the backup with gocryptfs (forward) and then compare the unencrypted backup with the original through rsync --dry-run i find the same number of files as missing files in my encrypted backup. they have very long filenames like this one: ''xxxx/xxxx/vlc-shares/public/images/fsthumbs/thumbs/MjovVFYvQWxhcm0gZnVyIENvYnJhIDExIC0gRGllIEF1dG9iYWhucG9saXplaSAtIFNlYXNvbiAxLTEyL0NvYnJhIDExIFN0YWZmZWwgMDEvQ29icmEgMTEgUzAxIEUwMDYgKERlciBBbHRlIHVuZCBkZXIgSnVuZ2UpLmF2aQ==.jpg''. the script accepts exit code 24 (vanished files) as successful ending of rsync for now until have time to further investigate and either file a bug at gocryptfs or work around it somehow. +For some reason gocryptfs seems to generate some files (two in my case) like '' gocryptfs.longname.*.name'' that are there when rsync scans the directory but vanish before rsync can sync them. this leads to rsync complaining about vanished files. when i mount the backup with gocryptfs (forward) and then compare the unencrypted backup with the original through rsync --dry-run i find a single file to be missing in my encrypted backup. It has a very long filename: ''xxxx/xxxx/vlc-shares/public/images/fsthumbs/thumbs/MjovVFYvQWxhcm0gZnVyIENvYnJhIDExIC0gRGllIEF1dG9iYWhucG9saXplaSAtIFNlYXNvbiAxLTEyL0NvYnJhIDExIFN0YWZmZWwgMDEvQ29icmEgMTEgUzAxIEUwMDYgKERlciBBbHRlIHVuZCBkZXIgSnVuZ2UpLmF2aQ==.jpg''. the script accepts exit code 24 (vanished files) as successful ending of rsync for now until have time to further investigate and either file a bug at gocryptfs or work around it somehow.
