I have the following in a a script that backs up the entire disk to a 
500GB usb drive that I mount on /backup.

sudo nice --adjustment=10 rsync -rlpgouvtS --progress -v
--delete --modify-window=1200 
--exclude-from=/home/your_name/rsync-backup_exclude / /backup

The rsync-backup_exclude fike looks like:

You probably don't have all of the same mount points that I do, so edit 
to taste.
