Description dgermansbz 2014-11-18 01:48:17 UTC
Most of the very large files I have are distributions from elsewhere. 
I have used --max-size=10MB to skip them.
I do have some specific files that I want transferred which are greater than 10MB so I entered them in the --include-from=includes.
I expected rsync to transfer the files listed in includes but it didn't.

--include[-from] is only for overriding excludes.

i think this is a very special use case and adding that as a feature would make no sense, imho, as rsync shouldn`t be turned into a jack of all trades tool.

what about specifically syncing those files with an extra run ?
