rsync assistance

Ok here we go.

I have mounted remote drives and I am trying to get rsync to just sync certain directories within these mounted folders.


Inside these mounted drives I have a folder called DR
user(at)machine# pwd

Im trying to just sync /mnt/prodnas02/*/DR/*

What Im trying to use is ..
rsync -rhu --progress --include-from=/root/rsync-include/drfolders --log-file=/var/log/copy.log /mnt/prodnas02 /mnt/backup01/

within my drfolders file I have something like

I've tried several different lines and include or exclude lines but for some reason I am truley missing something.

Any assistance with the syntax would be great.

Thanks in advance.
