Hack:   Mirroring Files and Directories with rsync
Subject:   Excluding the Trash directory

I am trying this hack out for the first time with the exlude option and I can't get it to not include the Trash.

Here's the hack
rsync -vaz --exclude=~/.Trash/ ~/ /Volumnes/Backup (external disk)

Any ideas?
