My home folder is encrypted, as enabled when prompted during the installation. I run an rsync to an external hard drive, but when I run rsync, it doesn't seem to copy the files from the unencrypted home folder, but the encrypted form only. I don't need the encrypted form backed up, but only the non-encrypted form since it is redundant with the external hard drive's encrypted partition and makes file recovery more straight forward without having to do any encryptfs passphrase mounts and such.

Any help appreciated.
