I wish to rsync an entire Linux tree to another partition for backup
while excluding certain directories.
/home /var and /usr/local are mounted on separate partitions.
How do I specify starting at the root directory? Is // correct?
The USAGE section of man rsync and some googling suggest I need a
trailing / for the source path. Is the line below correct?
rsync -uacHv --exclude="lost+found mnt proc public sys tmp" // /mnt/backup
(Above single line split into two by the Thunderbird)
