thank you very much, this started later due to some changes needed on the source file which to be copied hence terminated the rsync by pressing Control C and did required changes on the source file the one which to be copied latee executes the same above command sync throws an error, permission denied and sync does not happen.

Please tell me how to handle this. Thanks in adavnce.
