When backing up a volume into another, like a mounted volume onto a USB Flash memory it is possible to select the source as File Folder as source volume name (to backup all files in the volume), and /Volumes as source, and the destination as /Volumes/destination_volume_name. The problem is that in the destination volume the structure of the source volume is maintained inside a folder whose name is the source volume name. It would be nice to backup a volume into another keeping the same structure -- of course I can select all files in the source volume but it would have to do this every time a new file or folder is added to the source volume root directory.

Example Source volume named SRC1
Destination Volume named SRC1BCK

When setting aRSynch files

File/Folder: SRC1
Source: /Volumes

Destination: /Volumes/SRC1BCK

After run inside the root directory there is a Folder named SRC1 and the files of the original root dir of SRC1 is inside this folder.

It would be nice to have the option to specify something like
File/Folder: *
Source:/Volumes/SRC1
