fwbackups error when direct copy option selected

I have installed fwbackups on Debian Jessie and it works ok except when I try to choose option "direct copy" (this option is the reason I chose this program) it would not backup any files but give error saying the files not found (but the files are backed up when compressed option is selected instead).
I tried the program on a different computer with Debian Jessie but got same errors.
Any way to make this program (fwbackups) work with "direct copy" option?)

For the direct copy to work, fwbackups needs rsync. Make sure you have rsync installed.
