we use rsync to move encrypted files with no problems. i would say that's as "complex" as it gets, so you should be fine.

Subject: Can rsync handle any type of file?


I have been doing some substantial research about rsync and the rsync

I was wondering: can rsync backup any type of file? I have tested it with
"common" files Word, Excel, SQL dumps, log files etc

But what about more complex types of files, like vector images etc.

Thank you for your thoughts in advance.
