That is what I did. Running my test sync with these parameters also gave
me an error (22). But you brought me on the right track and leaving
--times also gave me an exit code of 0 (success) for my shell script.

So right now, I am running this:

root     22453 22447 41 10:35 pts/0    00:03:28 rsync --recursive
--links --compress --omit-dir-times --size-only --delete --bwlimit=10000

No, I am using 258GB out of 1.5TB.

Thank you for this hint. I will keep it in mind.

I have a gut feeling right now. Thanks again for your help. I'll report

Really need to ship these backup files in a save harbour...
