Some backup tool errors for tar and rsync are not caught and do not abort raspiBackup #18
referenced this issue
Oct 24, 2017
Further analysis showed that the root cause is buggy code added in v0.6.2 which caused some return codes not been caught as an error when a tar or rsync backup is created. That's in particular serious for tar backups because tar reports fatal errors with return code 2 which is ignored by raspiBackup. rsync errors 2,3 and 4 are also not caught but is very unlikely to happen:
Quote man rsync:
dd backups are not affected.
