I have rsync -rvz --prune-empty-dirs --remove-source-files
--log-file="rsync.log" --backup -e 'ssh' -f'- Saved/*' -f'- Screenshots/*'
-f'- Boondocks/*' -f'- Dilbert/*' -f'+ */' -f'+ /*' -f'+ *.jp*g' -f'+

The files are transferred but they are not removed from the source.  I've
deleted all files and directories from the target and tried again but
still, it didn't remove the source.

In all things, Be Intentional.
