I gave a little talk at OCLUG on how I put rsync into a script and then link 
that
to Double Commander so I have a "button" that rsync's left window to the right 
one.

Also buttons for my "remove from A (left) if in B (right)" directory tree.

I'm finding these aids helpful

I also have special backup scripts that backup selected directories via rsync 
to a Synology disk station.

As noted, rsync isn't user friendly, so I find it worth the effort to provide 
the friendliness to the
user (me!)
