Failed backup - extended system attributes

Post by gswarbrick »

Doing a big-ish backup (sync) between two Drobos and most of it's going well but about 6000 files have failed to copy with the message "The mounted file system does not support extended attributes". One of the two identical file systems clearly does... Any ideas?
