   The file, /media/hd0/salmo-boot/20120817-2200/rsync_error, shows:

*** Execution cycle 0 ***

Permission denied, please try again.
Permission denied, please try again.
Permission denied (publickey,password,keyboard-interactive).
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so far) [Receiver]
rsync error: unexplained error (code 255) at io.c(601) [Receiver=3.0.7]

which looks like a permissions error. The directories on the backup drive
are all owned by root.root with permissions 755. Subdirectories, such as
salmo-boot/20120817-2200/ have permissions 700.

   What should permissions be so that rsync can write these subdirectories
and complete the snapshots?
