modification times questions

I run --times when I use rsync (I actually use the -a flag) but the times do not transfer over and if I run rsync dryrun with -i I can see that it wants to transfer the files because of times. When I run rsync a second time with your suggestion the times do transfer over. I don't know why...

If you are sure the content is correct you can run rsync with both
--times and --size-only.
This will cause rsync to "fix" the timestamps on files that are the same
size on both ends.
