Hello everyone. I am using the --backup flag in rsync to save 
incremental changes that rsync makes when I sync a directory on my 
laptop with my remote server. Please look at my pastebin code: The problem is that I end up generating 
an directory on my laptop that 
contains empty versions of all the directories that were backed up. In 
short, it is a directory filled with empty sub directories. Furthermore,  
I am unable to have $INC be placed anywhere other than within $TARGET, 
no matter how I alter the code. Interestingly enough, I use a very 
similar script on the server itself, with no issues. It seems that 
rsync's remote backup scheme, with the --backup flag, is a bit borked.  
Any suggestions?
