    Hi all,

    I recently ran an rsync on an 8TB batch of files. The rsync came up a few bytes different:


    I then checked the sizes using Finder:

    SOURCE: 8,837,391,017,035 bytes (8.84 TB on disk) for 49,968 items
    DESTINATION: 8,837,306,702,766 bytes (8.84 TB on disk) for 49,966 items

    Is there an rsync command I can use to locate those 2 missing files and copy them over?

    Maybe temporary files were found but deleted before they were transferred. This could happen just by browsing the directories in Finder since finder will make extra files for thumbnails, etc.
