    Question Rsync --exclude rules for system backup

    I must admit,I thought this was going to be way easier:after backing up my system with a tar of my / directory with all the exclusions suggested here https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BackupYourSystem/TAR
    I was suggested that rsync also may be worth trying,so I had a go at backing up again with rsync trying to append the same exclusions as with tar,namely
    Code:
    /proc /sys /lost+found /mnt /media /dev
    well it apparently doesn't work the same way ,I keep getting some of these directories in the dry run test of rsync:can someone please point out what I'm doing wrong?
