I need someone to have a look at the messages from rsnapshot and possibly disk mounting with permissions. Rsnapshot is throwing errors for some reason when doing a new backup and trying to create links from older to new. I am backing up onto (a USB flash storage drive) which probably should be fine, using the automount from a MATE desktop session, which has the following mount properties. Don't know if any of this is a potential problem.

The following Information is for the mounted USB flash drive...
Code:
/dev/sdb1 on /run/media/jonathan/66C3-3686 type vfat (rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime,uid=1000,gid=100,fmask=0022,dmask=0022,codepage=437,iocharset=iso8859-1,shortname=mixed,showexec,utf8,flush,errors=remount-ro,uhelper=udisks2)


The errors, which show up for many if not all previously copied files look the same. Each one of them is like the following:

Code:
ERROR: Warning! Could not link("/run/media/jonathan/66C3-3686/backups/30min.0/Docs.folder/home/jonathan/Documents/Untitled7.bak~", "/run/media/jonathan/66C3-3686/backups/30min.1/Docs.folder/home/jonathan/Documents/Untitled7.bak~") : Operation not permitted


I appreciate the help thanks.

you cannot (sensibly) use rsnapshot on vfat since vfat does not support hardlinks.
GOOD LUCK!
