    When I try this line.

    rsync -apvz --delete /var/mail/ /hdb/backup/mail/

    It gives me the following error.

    rsync:mkdir "/hdb/backup/mail" failed: No such file or directory (2)
    then blablabla IO error etc.

    Is /dev/hdb your backup HDD? You must mount that first.

    Yes I found that only an little bit to late, because I had to do my whole install over. The backup disk got the / mount point and my main harddrive got the /usr/ mount point. So my install was using both drives. Which shouldnt be the case.

    I already did an complete reinstall for the 9th time ;)
