I don't specify --partial-dir. As you can see from the script, rsync at first copies to "in-progress", and then renames this to (for example) 2014-12-01-000000. So, if rsync interrupts, then at the next run the script will end "in-progress" (all partial files will be done) and then will rename this dir to 2014-12-01-000000. So, there never will be partial files in finished snapshots.
