This is going off-topic, but my backup drive is NTFS currently, which would
complicate things probably.

Unfortunately due to rsync's current inability to detect moved files that would
result in exactly the same problem I currently have: Not being able to know
whether a file was deleted and another different one was created or whether it
is just the same file that was moved (or renamed).
