Dear Steven -- If you tell rsync only to move newer files,
and you leave on your home computer an empty file of the
original name, but newer date/time, then rsync will not
transfer the file again. That's the best I can think of.
If a newer version of the file *does* appear, then rsync
will move it. The one thing this does not really work
for is files that are intentionally empty ...
