I'm trying to sync a 2.21 gigabyte file (so, a "large
file") between Win2k and Win2k, where the client is
pushing the file to the server (which is running
"rsync --daemon --no-detach").
It fails, and to isolate the problem, I tried cp'ing
cp /cygdrive/f/MY_db_200212252102.BAK /tmp
which works successfully. I then tried to rsync the
rsync -a -vv -W --include=MY_db_200212252102.BAK
--exclude=*.* /cygdrive/f/ /tmp
It appears to replace the file with a 0-byte file.
Here's the log from when it runs:
building file list ...
expand file_list to 4000 bytes, did move
including file MY_db_200212252102.BAK because of
total: matches=0 tag_hits=0 false_alarms=0
wrote 150 bytes read 36 bytes 124.00 bytes/sec
total size is -1911686656 speedup is -10277885.25
Does anyone know if there's anything I need to do to
get large file support? (I did have 4.58 gig free, so
it wasn't due to lack of space) Thanks.
