There really isn't such thing as a read-only file in linux. If
a file is open for writing by another program you can still write
to it though you normally should not to avoid data corruption.

Also if your doing a local copy I suggest not using the -z option
as using -z will likely dramatically slow down the sync process.
Only use -z if your copying over a slow network link.

Also if your doing multiple syncs and want to keep them in sync
I suggest you check out the --delete option as well.
