Hi Jacob,

Yes it will.  I have empty files on my software server that is
mirrored to several sites;

beaufort{Tools}% ls -l
total 0
-rw-rw-r--   1 Tools    Tools          0 Jul 27 09:18 acrobat.4.05
-rw-rw-r--   1 Tools    Tools          0 Feb 12  2001 apollo.
-rw-rw-r--   1 Tools    Tools          0 May 29 13:57 avanti_apollo.2000.
-rw-rw-r--   1 Tools    Tools          0 Aug  5 11:16 avanti_hercules.2000.4.1

I use rsync to keep these server up to date and as you can see above,
there are empty files.

Is rsync supposed to replicate empty files?
