Efficient rsyncrypto hides remote sync data
The rsync utility is smart enough to send only enough bytes of a changed file to a remote system to enable the remote file to become identical to the local file.

One of the aims of encryption is to try to make any change to the unencrypted file completely modify how the encrypted file appears.
