Rsync failed

I was backing up a home directory and had rsync fail on me. I noticed that it was trying to copy a large file (over 4.2 gigs). That made me wonder if the code is 32 bit and failed on the 2 ^32 (max size issue) The code which I invoked is as follows:

rsync -aPH --exclude-from=/var/tmp/ignorelist /home/me/ /run/media/me/ADATA\ #2/rsync-me/

It gave a message at failure as follows --->

  4288446464  78%   32.15MB/s    0:00:36
rsync: writefd_unbuffered failed to write 4 bytes to socket [sender]: Broken pipe (32)
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (1964386 bytes received so far) [sender]
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(605) [sender=3.0.9]
[root@puter ~]#

I would like to know if anyone has experienced this error before?
