Error #73579

rsync: failed to set times on <directory> Operation not permitted

You must actually own a directory in order to set its access and modification times to an arbitrary value. Just having write permissions is not sufficient.

Either chown the directory, or don't use the -t or -a flags in rsync (-a includes -t). Note that this will have a small performance penalty since rsync will no longer be able to detect unmodified files and it will perform additional checking to see if they are different.

Thanks a lot!

Thanks. Minor note: a includes option r.

Indeed, I needed to make sure to be the owner of the mounted filesystem. In my case (external harddrive automounted with Samba in fstab), I simply had to add "uid=myusername" in my fstab file.

Perfect. I chowned the directory and all "files and directories below this directory" to the user owning the cron job and also checked "set UID." The error is gone.
