I'm using ssh in a rsync script. I'm trying to transfer files from a folder name which has spaces in the name:
rsync -avz -e "ssh -i local-rsync-key /<mybackupdir> backup@<remoteIP>:/datafiles/folder name with space/*"
SSH is having trouble understanding the spaces. I want to use an alt-key-combination such as ALT-0255 on the keypad to enter a space, but I can't quite figure out how to do that in the BASH shell in linux.
