I thought that was the first thing I tried, but I made so many stupid typo
errors getting to this point that I am unsure. So I tried
/home/household/VirtualBox VMs/ This is the result:
*** Execution cycle 0 ***
rsync: change_dir "/home/household/VirtualBo" failed: No such file or
rsync error: some files/attrs were not transferred (see previous errors)
(code 23) at main.c(1183) [sender=3.1.0]
So what to try next?

Thanks for your help. You have reinforced my suspicion that dealing with
the space in the folder name is the issue.
