Hi,

I am testing rsync and it looks as though it is copying over the entire
file which doesn't sound right.

System: Windows 2003

Rsync.exe
cygpopt-0.dll
cygwin1.dll

I have just tested rsync with a 571Mb zip file containing our Backup
Exec installation source.

The command I am running is:

rsync -avp --delete --progress --stats /cygdrive/c/rsync_test/
"/cygdrive/Y/" > rsync_log.txt

First I copied the file BackUpExec-11D.7170_32BIT_VERSION.zip into both
source and target and ran an rsysnc (I didn't have the progress or stats
switches on the first run).

This is what my log shows:

building file list ...
0 files...
2 files to consider
../

Number of files: 2
Number of files transferred: 0
Total file size: 584742597 bytes
Total transferred file size: 0 bytes

Matched data: 0 bytes
File list size: 118
File list generation time: 0.002 seconds File list transfer time: 0.000
seconds Total bytes sent: 146 Total bytes received: 32

sent 146 bytes received 32 bytes 356.00 bytes/sec total size is
584742597 speedup is 3285070.77



Then I opened up the zip and added a few extra words to a css file and
then ran another rsync.

This is the output I received (with the progress and stas switches).

Number of files: 2

Total file size: 584742598 bytes
Total transferred file size: 584742598 bytes
Literal data: 584742598 bytes

Total bytes sent: 584814160
Total bytes received: 48
sent 584814160 bytes
received 48 bytes
15595045.55 bytes/sec
total size is 584742598



This looks to me as though it is transferring the entire file as the
sent bytes is 584814160 and I am now confused as it should have only
transferred the changes in the zip file, although it does say that it
only received 48 bytes.

Am I reading this wrong?

Thanks for your help.
