I miss -c (or --checksum) there.
You never know whether the filesize changed, or whether the time is correct.
I am much to paranoid to do it without -c, I'd recomment using it at 
least on weekends when noone is working to make sure the data is right, 
since calculating the checksum does some HD accessing such a huge file.
