Thank you, Wayne.   My options are:

--server --sender --numeric-ids --perms --owner --group -D --links
--hard-links --times --block-size=2048 --recursive . /

We don't have hard links, AFAIK.

I am archiving 2 months of data, and then I will trying doing another
rsync run, and I'll add the -v option as you suggested.
