The way to notice if rsync made use of a renamed file is by looking at
the matched data vs the literal data in the --stats output. Rsync will
always output that it's creating the missing file, but it will do it
using local (matched) data if it can. Some items to check:
- Make sure that the renamed file is identical to a file in the new
transfer. Without --checksum, it has to match in size and modify-
time. With --checksum, it has to match in size and checksum.
- Make sure that the renamed file is in the transfer hierarchy. Rsync
will not search the whole filesystem looking for renamed files, just
the directories that were specified in the transfer and any extra
directories on the receiving side that are subdirectories of dirs in

Yes, --detect-renamed works with all the --delete options (unlike
--fuzzy, which only works with --delete-after).
