You can sync just directories by excluding everything else. In a
modern rsync, that is this filter option, which says to exclude
everything that is not a directory:
-f '-! */'
In older rsync versions, you must specify both an include of all
directories, and an exclude of everything else:
It cannot copy any other "file structures" other than the files
themselves, which includes data.
