I have a local directory that I am trying to sync with a remote directory.  
That's fine, but there's a lot of data that is out of sync so I decided to make 
a local copy of the difference to then bring to the remote location.

So I ran a dry-run between the two to generate a list of files in 

Then I ran rsync from local to localBackup.

rsync -av --files-from=/tmp/listOfFiles.txt /var/MyData/ /USB/Backup/

Now, while this is happening, I am still rsycning between my local and my 
remote.  So I re-generate the listOfFiles.txt, which contains less things to 
copy than before.... I'd like to delete anything in /USB/Backup that is not in 
the listOfFiles.txt

TLDR: I want to make a local backup of the differences between local and remote 
and sync them to a separate local drive.
