Ah. Your source argument /media/sda1/work/ with a trailing slash, which
puts that directory at the root of the rsync file list, does not match
the existing data in the work/ subdirectory of the destination.

How you should fix this depends on where you want the source files to
go. Let's take the source file

/media/sda1/work/software/prc/dcpcrypt2/Hashes/DCPtiger.pas

as an example. If you want it to go to

/media/truecrypt6/backup/work/software/prc/dcpcrypt2/Hashes/DCPtiger.pas ,

then either change the source argument to /media/sda1/work (without the
trailing slash) or change the destination to
/media/truecrypt6/backup/work/ . On the other hand, if you want the
file to go to

/media/truecrypt6/backup/software/prc/dcpcrypt2/Hashes/DCPtiger.pas ,

then leave the rsync command as is but run a manual
"mv /media/truecrypt6/backup/work/* /media/truecrypt6/backup/" to avoid
recopying all the files.
