mystery data fills my target disk

Hello again,

I figured out the problem: I didn't have /Volumes in my exclude file, so my
rsync command was copying this directory -- including an entire second copy
of my master drive -- to a /Volumes directory on my target drive. There's my
mystery data, then!

I added this to my exclude file and now everything is working great. It's
been quite an adventure setting this up, but I think rsync is going to work
well in my situation.
