rsync re-syncs same files
I have a problem with y rsync setup, it synchronizes the same files that are already there.
Let me first explain what i actually did:
I have a Linux VPS which i use it as a sync point between my two computers.
<pc1-win> <------------> <VPS-lnx> <------------> <pc2-win>
I uploaded 1 GB of files from <pc1> to the <vps> and then in turn <pc2> successfully pulled-synced the files.
All was going well until my <pc1> "died" so i bought a new one. When my new computer <pc1> was installed, i used a usb flash drive, which had the same 1 GB files with the ones used in the first sync, to copy the files to my new pc.
When i run rsync, then it is pushing the again the files to the VPS.
1) why since the files i pushed to the VPS in the beginning are re-synced again from my new PC? Isn`t it possible if the source folder is destroyed to just copy from a hdd ?
2) Is there a problem i use a Linux system for sync in between two Windows systems?
