I need to transfer a 100 GB tar file over a Network Connection.
I started the process with 'rsync -avP' to see it's Progress.
Then the Connection broke after a few hours, of Course that was before the process was completed.
I re-run the same command and luckily it seems to just continue the incomplete download.
However, I now read that one should use the --partial Option to enable that behaviour. I didn't use it, but still rsync seems to behave as I want it to - it continues the transfer.
Do I need to cancel and restart, or is everything fine now?
