Deltacopy for windows and rsync problems

I have a WinXp client on which is installed DeltaCopy. I have done setup and settings a 100xtimes or more and no problems until now. It seems like rsync cant create .ssh folder and known_hosts. Even if I create it by hand it does not work. I also tried the latest version of rsync and no luck. Is it posible to set up Deltacopy in that way so rsync will look for "known_hosts" file on some other location?

I get this error:
Could not create directory '/cygdrive/c/Documents and Settings/User Dave/.ssh'.

Thanks for the help!

What user is your DeltaCopy running as?  Is your account actually named "User Dave" with the space?

serialband: Yes. The account was created like that. It also has admin priviliges.
As I see it there are 2 options:
1.) Make rsync+deltacopy look for that file in different (more nicely named) location.
2.) Rename the user and folders. (much more things to do and things that can go wrong)

So option 1 is prefered for me if sbd can point me into the right direction.

Try running your script with the Administrator account.  Also check that you have quotes around folder names with spaces.

The problem was solved with creating different use / desktop with no special characters.
