taking advantage of filles in folder other than destination

but the requirement is to upload to the backup server (from database
"rsync -a --compare-dest=../$YESTERDAYS_BACKUP $TODAY $REMOTESOURCE
#change the src and dest"
this command does not seem to work for me !! I mean that the whole file is
getting transferred !
Any thoughts on this ?
