Renaming Folder without resync it fully ?

Hey all,

Sorry if my question seems candide but I need some help.

I'm running samba on one of my remote machine,and rsync allow me to do my daily backup through a low bandwidth network. Until recently everything was ok, but I've got some users renaming several folders. In this case rsync resend the full folder (including the files !!!) and not only the modification. It seems that rsync does not see the difference between a renamed folder and a new one. How could I avoid this ??

By advance thanks
