OS6 - Rsync - Test Mode

I have started to use the NAS-To-NAS backup over rsync. All works well - after a couple of teething issues caused by my config of the backup. But would it be possible to have an option added that allows rsync to be run in 'test' mode (ie -n or --dry-run) so you can take a look at the log before actually running the backup?

It would be good option.  Perhaps post it in the idea exchange.

@StephenB 

Just went to the Ideas Exchange sub forum and the suggestion was already there - and has been since 2016. So obviously not on the list of things to do!

That's too bad, as it would be quite helpful for troubleshooting.
