    [12.04] Error using rsync to backup...

    I am trying (and learning) to use rsync to back up my files (Everybody says "Back up before you do anything major.") Good advice. I am trying to back up my Home folder to a USB pendrive. I used the following:
    Code:
    rsync -vaxrPXhn /Home/ /<Destination>
    I did a -vv (very verbose) Dry Run and got this:
    Code:
    total: matches=0  hash_hits=0  false_alarms=0 data=0
    
    sent 135.68K bytes  received 12.83K bytes  99.00K bytes/sec
    total size is 171.68M  speedup is 1156.05 (DRY RUN)
    rsync error: some files/attrs were not transferred (see previous errors) (code 23) at main.c(1070) [sender=3.0.9]
    ben@MissionControl:~$
    Error code 23 is "Partial transfer due to error."
    What have I done wrong here?
    I went by the rsync manpages> What did I miss?
