File Replication via a VERY slow connection


I want to synchronize / replicate files via a VERY slow connection, but these files are quite big (~50k transfer rate for files about 1GB size).

I want this process to take place in the night from 18.00 to 08.00; this span is not enough to transfer a file.

My solution was rsync, but it cannot store an already transferred part and restart from that point (or can it?)

What other solutions are there?

You could always put it into a multi-part archive and transfer the parts separately.

Is there any other software that can restart and continue downloading an already startet part of the file?
Or is there even an option to rsync I'm missing?
