The way the space is escaped there at the end probably needs some
tweaking. Note that the space is escaped in the current shell, and
rsync receives 'archlap:/mnt/media/larissa-wine/drive_c/Program Files'
as the last argument. I'm not sure how it's handled after this point,
but either of the following ways should work:
1) archlap:/mnt/media/larissa-wine/drive_c/Program Files
2) archlap:'/mnt/media/larissa-wine/drive_c/Program Files'
