I've a script that syncs files between my server to my mobile via sshpass:

sshpass -p password rsync -vrz source1 source2 -e ssh user@ip:dest



rsync everytime checks all files to mobile,


-vrz --update --modify-window=1

rsync doesn't update newer files from server to mobile

how are the correct options to use rsync with fat32?

    Have you tried with --size-only? – watchmansky Sep 13 '17 at 18:36

    You may be running into trouble with FAT32's low-precision timestamps, in which case adding --modify-window=2 might help. See this previous answer and its comments. – Gordon Davisson Sep 13 '17 at 23:23
