Content Binary Replication

We have a DR env to which we replicate the DB and File system. The file system replication is done through lsyncd and I believe the lsyncd program is configured to monitor the root /contentstore directory. Any changes to the files will be replicated instantaneously to DR. Since it monitors the root contentstore directory (which includes content from the year 2010, 2011 & 2012), it puts the lsyncd program on heavy load. We are thinking of changing the lsyncd config to monitor only the current year's binaries.

The question is - Is there any scenario in Alfresco where a content binary file gets "updated"? For e.g - a content that got created in 2010 is modified, will it modify the actual binary file that is stored in /contentstore/2010/<month>/<day>/<hour>/<min>/<sec> or will it create a new binary file under /contentstore/2012/<month>/<day>/<hour>/<min>/<sec>? We just want to make sure that reducing the scope of lsyncd to monitor only the current year's directory wont break anything.
