What is the name of this new folder that is created? The trailing slash on /home/ should prevent it from creating a directory named /home/v_7.10/home. Try doing /home/* as the source.

trailing / slash means to copy contents into the directory or make a
directory and put contents into new dir.

I'm glad that was able to fix it! Let me know if you have any more issues. rsync can be a tricky beast.
