When I got this error, I was still able to manually copy the
file. When rsync was re-run, it was fine ( nothing to copy ).
This particular file was 29gb in size at the time.

This message is from your operating system (EFBIG); you've probably
hit the limits of what your file system can handle, as set by
setrlimit (check RLIMIT_FSIZE). Alternatively, I can imagine syncing
to a different filesystem and then remounting it or something...
