The dot at the end of the command means current directory and --delete
asks for deletion of all files and directories not present in the
source, so rsync just did what it was asked for. If I plan doing such
operations repeatedly, I make a batch file which starts with "cd" to
the correct directory (and optionaly creates it). I know why I am
doing it. I managed to erase the whole computer by mistake...
