Could I run rsync to download files from a server without rsync daemon?

Hi, all

I just tried to sync files from one server to another.
After the sync process, I found the files are bigger than original ones.

I looked up the web and found someone mentions the rsync daemon. So I have to run the daemon on one server before I run the rsync?

The command I used is
rsync --partial --progress -r source destination

BTW, I also find some file name changed from upper case to lower case.
