rsync can do that, files get copied by a checksum compare, if they are
different, than that 64k block is pulled from the src. If no changes,
no update. New files get a full copy. But you will need scratchpad
space for the biggest file available to do this. rsync is pretty
bulletproof, I've been using it here to make backup dirs of important
dirs on other machines on my own LAN for several years now. I have it
as a cron job & it sends me an email every morning showing what it did.
I do a lot of photo-processing and video-processing, which takes up a lot of
disk space, so I've put a large drive on the remote box and want to collect
everything together there. Wouldn't rsync delete files on the remote box
when I remove them here to make space?
