rsync problem

Trying to synch two machines with rsynch.

1) Tried to sync files from main computer to backup. I set up a cron on the backup machine to update new/changed files (from the server machine) every minute. The command:

/usr/bin/rsync -azR server1:/var/www /
The problem is that it is copying over the entire directory, even though there is an identical file/directory structure already in place. It should only copy what's updated (which for now should be nothing).

Am I using the wrong switches?

The -u option can be used for update only (does not overwrite newer files)
