rsync continue on errors?


Hi

I am doing something like:

rsync --ignore-errors -Phazx /mnt/Old/ /mnt/FAT/

If you haven't guessed yet /mnt/FAT/ is using FAT file system and thus does not support files >4gig.

I want to copy all files under 4gig anyway... but rsync stops when it hits that file... how do I get it to just ignore it and carry on?

Thanks.

It is USB, but not a stick. It is an external hard disk.

--max-size=4G-1

FAT32's max file size is actually 4GB minus 1 byte... --max-size by itself doesn't actually do anything.
