I am really not sure I understand what you are describing here so I will give
general backup with rsync advice...

1.  Don't rsync -c unless you really really have to.  It is horribly
inefficient and should only be used in a few unusual use cases.

2.  Forget this daily/monthly moving stuff.  Use rsync with either --link-dest
or --backup-dir to manage your multiple backups.  Note that you can get backup
systems that are based on this such as rsnapshot, dirvish, backuppc if you
don't want to do your own scripting.
