Rsync for windows

  • I have tried this one. A lot of GUI it has run without any problem.
  • Next I will try this one it has an rsync server – nice…but it wants cygwin…maybe next time.
  • DeltaCopy Seems like a good match, but i cant just run the rsync that is in the zip file, you must setup some local servers etc.
  • Wonderfull blog with a lot more to read/try
  • Favorite clone: not found :(
