i have several large .tar backup file on the server
it's about 2 GB and 4 GB 

the question is, if i syncronize using rsync to other
computer, rsync will re-transfer the whole
1 big file, or only transfer part of the file ? 

or maybe i should reduce the size, by splitting the file
into 650 Mb each. 

or it's the same as if transfering via FTP ?
