An excerpt from a bash script I'm using to backup some photos:
#!/bin/bash FROM="/cygdrive/f/\"Trip to Austria\"" TO="/cygdrive/s/\"Trip to Austria\"" rsync -av $FROM $TO
When I print the final command from inside the script it prints properly, i.e.,
rsync -av /cygdrive/f/"Trip to Austria" /cygdrive/s/"Trip to Austria"
However, the command doesn't work when I run the script. The error I get relates to the spaces in the paths not being recognized.
rsync: link_stat "/cygdrive/f/Photos/"Trip" failed: No such file or directory (2) rsync: link_stat "/home/User/to" failed: No such file or directory (2) rsync: change_dir "/home/User/Austria"" failed: No such file or directory (2)
Strangely though, the command does work when I type it out in the Cygwin shell.
