    Thoroughly enjoying using rsync for incremental remote backup and so far it's working well.
    One issue I have is that I've specified a directory (in this case /backup) for the remote transport, but the rsync job seems to be treating this as a relative directory rather than absolute. As a result, it's rsyncing to /home/user/backup instead.

    I'm pretty sure this was working as expected before - has something changed with recent releases?
    I've checked my configuration and all is well - with the absolute path /backup rather than just backup.

    Hi

    This worked perfectly, thanks!
    I used /../../backup/ to get to /backup.
