In this scenario, let's say you want to clone your OS at the filesystem level and the source system (the system you want to clone from) is in use.
Doing a blind rsync / is a big problem because it uses twice as much space for no reason.
The reason for this is that with ecryptfs you have a /home/.ecryptfs directory which has the actual encrypted versions of your files and folders. However your home directory (eg. /home/someuser) is mounted.
