Espionage 2 / Re: 'Endless' Network Backup
December 23, 2010, 04:38:25 AM
In case anyone else also encounters this problem, I've found that it relates to the new Apple 7.5.2 firmware for the Time Capsule. After re-installing AirPortUtility551 (firmware 7.5.1), I am able to a) delete all those pesky temporary rsync files from the Time Capsule without having to resort to "erase" and b) use Espionage to perform backups to my Time Capsule again.

I have the exact same issue, even though I've formerly been able to use Espionage backups to my Time Capsule. Backups now just execute endlessly, and I can also see the thousands of sparse files that the OP mentioned. I erased my time capsule and did a 200GB Time Machine backup afterwards without any issues subsequently, but I just cannot find a way to get the Espionage based backups to work and ALL of my critical data sits on the encrypted images... :(

There appear to be 3 rsync processes per backup, it remained there for an entire evening even though the image to backup was not all that large:
ps -ef|grep -i rsync
  501   825   224   0   0:00.02 ??         0:00.02 /usr/bin/rsync -aE --delete --delete-after /Volumes/MacData/data/src/my_image.git/.my_image.git.sparsebundle /Volumes/Data/Espionage/EspionageBackups/niella/-960678611/my_image.git
  501   826   825   0   0:00.01 ??         0:00.01 /usr/bin/rsync -aE --delete --delete-after /Volumes/MacData/data/src/my_image.git/.my_image.git.sparsebundle /Volumes/Data/Espionage/EspionageBackups/niella/-960678611/my_image.git
  501   827   826   0   5:07.54 ??         5:14.21 /usr/bin/rsync -aE --delete --delete-after /Volumes/MacData/data/src/my_image.git/.my_image.git.sparsebundle /Volumes/Data/Espionage/EspionageBackups/niella/-960678611/my_image.git

Worst of all is, it seems I cannot delete the (partial) backup images on the destination drive, since tools like ls just shows "ls: ..DS_Store.zx3EYc: No such file or directory" hundreds of times.

Must say, I'm a bit at a loss as to what to do next.
