Rsync for Windows

See: >>

It works, with the following caviats:

  • it's cygwin, so it is extremely slow.
  • it doesn't seem to deal well with unicode characters in path/filenames.
  • it's cygwin, so drive-to-drive syncs on the same system are not intuitive unless you have too much prior experience with cygwin; for example, if you are trying to copy from d:\files to e:\backup you would have to say something like
    D:\files> rsync -rv --progress * /cygdrive/e/backups
  • did I mention it is extremely slow?

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
