That kinda didn't work:

rsync -vai --delete --include='S[A-Z]*' --include='S[a-h]*' --exclude='*' \
/share/Public/videos/ /share/Backup-HDD-04

I deleted, manually, a directory on the backup HDD to test this out and
got the following result:

NASD30354.ZADMIN <795> ./Backup-HDD-04.list.sh   
sending incremental file list
.d..t...... ./
cd+++++++++ Sense8/
cd+++++++++ Sense8/Season-1/
cd+++++++++ Sense8/Season-2/

sent 25,683 bytes  received 82 bytes  17,176.67 bytes/sec
total size is 1,666,354,406,916  speedup is 64,675,117.68

None of the files in those two directories were copied to the backup HDD
after the directories were created.

I then modified the script so that I could include directories that start
with "s":

rsync -vain --delete --include='S[A-Z]*' --include='S[a-h]*' \
--include='s*' --exclude='*' \
/share/Public/videos/ /share/Backup-HDD-04

I then got the following result (yes, in dry-run mode):

NASD30354.ZADMIN <802> ./Backup-HDD-04.list.sh

I kinda see what is going on, based upon the man page and filter rules.
I was worried about getting stuff that starts with "s", so I renamed a file
so that the frst letter was now a "s" and it was listed for copying.

Since a majority of the files start with all-caps, I don't think I'll
run into an issue of copying more files that I really wanted.

Thanks for the tip, as I now have something to work with.
