Is there a way to help rsync better detect that files are identical? I did a fresh full disk "clone" mirror with Acronis TrueImage and after did an rsync to test and it detected a bunch of files as changed etc. I was copying from C drive, ie Desktop or Documents to F: drive/backup. I used:
rsync -avz --delete --chmod=ugo=rwX --modify-window=2 ...
In rsync of eclipse workspace it started detecting a bunch of .metadata etc, I killed it before it finished.
On my Documents folder it seemed to go through listing a bunch of directories, so maybe its just listing directories and not really detecting files? But usually when rsync detects that source and destination really are identical it simply exits without outputting anything at all after displaying it usual "sending incremental file list"... Which is exactly what happened the SECOND time I ran the rsync on the Documents folder, which I'm sure was IDENTICAL already after my successful Acronis CLONE of my entire drive.
Is this a known problem with rsync on Windows? Is there a solution or better command-line parameters I can use?
