IMHO there is a little bit less documentation on who it works. 

    o The importance of local archive directory.

    o If the backed up machine completely crashes, can I get my data

The backup runs on an active machine. There may be deleting of files

Which verbose level I have to set to get the directory name (I've
tried -v9 but getting gigabytes of debug output)?
