That MAY not be quite what Colin wanted. It will update
/storage/backups/stuff, putting in there any new files from /home/stuff
and updating any changed files, but it won't do anything about files
which have been deleted from /home/stuff - for those, you need to add
the --delete option.
And although the likelihood is that Colin wants the sync to be in that
one direction, given the names of the directories, he should be aware
that rsync does a uni-directional sync and that new or changed files in
/storage/backups/stuff will be deleted using rsync -av --delete.
