As a total newbie, after reading tons of questions in SO and the documentation repetitively several times, I came up with this solution:
rsync -Pavuh --append-verify source destination
--append-verify flag implies
--inplace flag and
--inplace flag implies
--partial and I only put the
-P flag there because I am lazy to write
Yet, when I issue this command, and
Ctrl+C it in the middle of a big file, and then re-issue it, after it finishes I see that that big file is left where I cut it off.
The right behaviour should be as per documentation to leave the partially transferred file as-is on cancellation according to the
--partial flag (which is done) and then continue to append to it on the second trial according to the
How can I make rsync resume from where it was interrupted?
