rsync HFS+ -> UFS2

This is my first post to this list.

I have been backing up some files with rsync from My Mac OS X 10.4.7  
machine, which uses HFS+ filesystem to a FreeBSD 6.1-RELEASE machine,  
which uses UFS2 filesystem.  They go across a 100-base-T lan, which  
has little or no traffic on it.
On my Mac, I mount the nfs exported volume on the FreeBSD machine with:
$ mount -t nfs moe:/backup /Users/Charles/mnt

I recently had to restore these files, and not all of them survived  
the trip.
I should mention that I did not use rsync to do the restore.  I  
mounted the nfs share on the FreeBSD machine, and copied them over to  
the Mac.

These file types are a mixed bag, text, stuffit  
(.sit), .zip, .dmg, .cdr.
They range in size from a few kb to > 6GB.
The errors I received when trying open some of the restored files all  
said, "codec overrun".

What would be the correct strategy for using rsync in this situation?

I'm currently trying - $ rsync -auv --stats --delete-after -E  
Downloads mnt

This is the result of the above:
Number of files: 285
