I use rsync as two streams for / partition as root and /home for all user

See below scripts :

Home :

time rsync -avvuhh --stats --delete --exclude=/home/vince/Music2 /home
/home/vince/Music2/Backups > rsync-home.log 2>rsync-home.err
exit 0


time rsync -avvuhh --stats --delete --exclude=/dev --exclude=/proc
--exclude=/mnt --exclude=/run --exclude=/tmp --exclude=/home --exclude=/media
--exclude=/sys / /home/vince/Music2/Backups/SSD-Mageia-v7-HDD > rsync-root.log
exit 0

Mind you trying to make an image of the boot (/) back up to another drive (a
SSD) mounted as /mnt/disk1 does not work as it create a directory 2 with 2
blocks of restored data as / and disk1 both in the directory I am running it

Mounted devices :

$ df
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sdc3 88G 18G 66G 22% /mnt/disk1
/dev/sda9 992G 607G 335G 65% /home
/dev/sdb1 2.7T 873G 1.9T 32% /home/vince/Music2

I have ommitted some systems.
