delta transfer problem

Hello everyone,

this is my first email and I hope I do not say stupid things:)

I'm trying to synchronize two folders on two different servers via a
satellite link (rsync can be useful for its properties) only that I have a
problem, some files are updated on the source, but rsync transfers the
entire file on the target, not the differences.

This is' the configuration:

- Source: rsync 2.6.8 x64 Centos 5.x
- Target: x64 Ubuntu 10.04 rsync 3.0.7

The file to be transferred every 3 hours will be deleted, recreated with the
new size but with the same name and extension.

This is my command:

..> Rsync - aiuvz-P - log-file = (somewhere) - no-whole-file - size-only -
chmod = xxxxxx-source / dest /

By running this command, the file is created in part of the same size as the
original file transferring the entire file.

Can you tell me why rsync does not intervene on those files? Incompatibility
'between versions?

Thank you in advance for your possible help
