I did, but left with some uncertainty. "H" hides the files from the transfer? What does it mean? "P" protects files from being deleted? I even tried '+r *', no luck. > Short version: per-directory rules only apply on the side they're > *specified on*, but you need the exclusion to apply to *both* sides. Hm. Maybe more reasoning behind. I'm syncing a quite large tree, but some directories contain huuge VM images, which I need to transfer using another mechanism. Because rsync doesn't seem to handle filesizes of about 100…500GiB well. These directories should contain a `.rsync-filter` to prevent them from the sync, but rsync should not remove these same-named files on the remote side. -- Heiko
