Thank you Wayne now my problem is clear. Man is a bit cryptic in this section (for me).

I already tried to use per directory filter but using --dry-run option (obviously) won't work... doing it in a test directory without the '-n' option all come's to work...

Thank you again,

The standard for rsync is for the client side to share its rules with the server, and the daemon is never the client.
> So, if you need the client to obey a filter rule, either specify that rule to the client, or specify that the client read per-dir merge rules from files that are included in the transfer (and limit yourself to delete-after or the files won't be there in time to affect the delete).
