Yes, I realized I forgot to paste the command in after I sent the
previous email.  Sorry about that.

Here it is:

rsync --stats --delete-excluded --exclude Cache/ --exclude nobackup/
--exclude Trash/ --exclude .cxoffice/ --delete --backup
--backup-dir=/mnt/usbhd/`date +%A` -a /home /mnt/usbhd/current

For reference, the error message is:

rsync: mkdir "/mnt/usbhd/Tuesday/home/swebster/fdtdtemp/temp/examples"
failed: File exists (17)
