You are currently excluding the directory "/System Volume Information"
(including the quotes). Remove the double quotes:
'--exclude=/System Volume Information'
Not sure about your other error. For reasons I don't understand,
rsync seems somewhat susceptible to network issues or delays.
Rsync recently has added a keep-alive fearute to the protocol,
which is not yet supported by BackupPC. Perhaps that would help.
