Question 1
I tried to backup another partition.

The command I *THOUGHT* I gave was:
rsync --verbose  --progress --stats --recursive --times --perms
--links \ /media/richard/jessie8-6-sda6/

I got a similar error message to last time (i.e. 'file not found').
The problem was a non-printing character (space?) after the first
line). Is there a graphical editor which would high-lite that
"something" is there?

geany has quite a menu of things to enable visibility of inkless

[https://www.geany.org/manual/current/index.html#id116] seems to agree with you. I'll try it this afternoon.

Works a charm. Didn't have to read manual <grin>
