I'm working with rsync to archive old files on a running system. Thus, I use a command line of the form:

find /some/dir -various -conditions -printf '%P\n' | rsync -v --files-from=- --remove-source-files /some/dir user@archive_host:/archive/dir

This functions correctly and does what I want. However, even after passing -v to rsync, it does not print the files it transfers. I assume this would normally just exclude the command line arguments themselves; however, since the find command will produce an arbitrary, long list of files, I would like to be able to see them as the command runs.

How can I see a list of files transferred when using --files-from?

man rsync|grep progress shows you the parameter --progress
