Beginner needs a guide

I'm trying to get rsync to use a list of directories and their contents to
to another drive on a Windows XP machine.

I tried the command 

rsync -rDPt --delete 
/cygdrive/d/source/ /cygdrive/e/backup

But the trouble is that no matter what I put in the include_list file it
always copies everything in source. I even tried having an empty
include_list file and it still copied everything across! 

Can someone tell me the logic behind this and how to get it to work?

I couldn't find any examples of how to do this online.

Sorry for being such a 'Windows' wimp. ;-)
