ops! My apologizes, you are correct, my first version of the script checked
the exits code and it seems that I forgot to comment it :(
Sorry for the inconvenience.
but, the second time that makes this re-rsync it takes the same time that
the first time...it seems that it doen't make an incremental backup with our
large files... Do you think that the cause could be the problem of the new
optimized algorithm that you put in rsync 3.0.0?

Thanks again, and sorry for all
