What are the limits to file size and file count when doing a rsync transfer
using 2.5.6?

I was trying to rsync about 500 GB of data with many files and many
directories, but it has been stuck building the file list for several hours.
First of all, is it possible to transfer 500 GB of data? Secondly, what
would the limit for file count be when doing a rsync transfer? Any comments
or help would be appreciated.
