I just back up to a hard drive with cp -a, which works fine. The
attributes are preserved and I can easily mount the drive to access

I use rsync for basically the same reason but my objective is to be
able to install the replacement drive and be up and running again in a
matter of minutes.

When copying to an empty partition, rsync provides no advantage over cp -a.
