I have a problem with transfer files between two Linux servers in the same network. On source server I have directory with 40055 small files, directory size is 34 GB. I tried to transfer those files with rsync command:
rsync -ah --progress --inplace /dir/dir_with_files user@server:/dir/destination_dir
After transfer, on destination server I have directory with size 108 GB not 34 GB
Blocks on partitions are the same.
I did the same thing with scp but the problem is the same.
