What you probably want is:

rsync -av /path/to/original/folder /path/to/backup

With this command on your backup rsync will make folder named as folder
in your original path under backup. Notice that there is no need for
those / on the end of paths. Also, you will not need root permission for
your home folder backups with any combination of options for rsync.
