this is one [shortest] of many rsync scripts that has been working along with
rest over several years.

#!/bin/sh
###	 fn=	rs.hda1
##	use=	run rsync backup of hda6 to hda1
echo "syncing hda6 to hda1"
rsync -a -u -v /hd/a/06/ /hd/a/01/ > /hd/a/00-rs.syoa.`date +%Y.%m%d.%H%M.%S`

i am curious as to your '--filter=' as you are showing '-_' before filter path,
and you are directing source to destination of *same name*. this in it self can
cause you problems as they are same, therefore they are already synced.

you should try a different destination.

hth. good luck.
