Should I worry about the "vanished files" warning?

All it means is that rsync saw a file that needed transferring but the
file was gone when rsync actually tried to open it. So look at the
filenames and decide if it is a problem or not.

Every 5 mins, I rsync the files from the final directory to a remote machine. I guess that during the sync process some files get re-written, when the batch process moves the fresh ones in the final dir.
