copy the partition /home from local machine to a remote machine, box2.

rsync -avHx --delete /home/ root@box2:/home

Make a copy of a partition:

rsync -avr --progress --stats /var/ /usr/var/

rsync new files only
rsync -avr --update --progress /web/vs/files/binary-cache/ root@

This will rsync a cluster from the web nodes.
