Hi All,
Does rsync support resuming feature?
Now, this is the case, when we back a 4GB file, for example.
I have backed up for about 2GB in progress, and we found this is a connnection problem to Internet, so we simply re-plug the net-cable and do rsynce again.

Currently, I found rsync have to re-transfer the 4GB file again.

Is there any way out of the problem or simply an option will do?  Thanks.
Sincerely yours,

Daniel Li
