           Summary: creates huge file
           Product: rsync
           Version: 2.6.3
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: core

I am using rsync with shh to backup remote servers. One system I am backing up
wants to create a huge file, greater than 125GB. the hard drive is only 80GB,
and the backup is usually about 35GB. I am not having this problem with any
other system I am backing up. 

My backup server uses SME 7.0 server which is based on Centos 4.3, and the
server I am backing up uses sme 6.01 which is based on redhat 7.6 (I think).
The system had been working properly until a couple of days ago. Need a push in
some direction.
