I may have misunderstood the question, but maybe we should point out
that, on the receiving end, each file needs at least an amount of *disk
space* equal in size to the file as a new file is constructed before the
old file is deleted.
I am not sure which end the 100 bytes per file applies to, and I guess
that is the RAM memory footprint?. Does rsync need 100 bytes for each
file that might be transferred during a session (all files in the
specified directory(ies)), or does it need only 100 bytes as it does one
file at a time?
Trying to learn, also,
