There's nothing in rsync to do that.  How about making the files and directories all belong to another user, set the sticky bit and write for your rsync user on the directories, unset write for the files, and rsync that way, then chown afterwards?  the
updates to existing files will fail, leaving you only with new.

Subject:  transferring files that don't exist on remote system.


Is there a way to transfer only those files that don't exist on the remote
system? That is, I don't want to update common files even when the local
system has new versions of common files.
