As Steve implied, the best way is probably to try it and see! Pass
--stats to rsync to get a bunch of useful information about how much
it is transferring. If you don't yet trust rsync to write to the real
destination, you can use a dummy destination and --compare-dest to the
real one; this will give you the same statistics.
