Greetings. I've been using rsync for quite a long time. I have a homedir 
I like to backup to a NAS. I find myself having to manually specifying 
paths rather than letting rsync copy the entire home directory.

I lack development skills. Would there be a way for rsync to be passed 
an option to exclude a specific path during a sync operaton? All of my 
attempts to use exclude have failed, as it does not respect paths, only
