Has anybody found a port of rSynch that works with Windows 7?
I see one on SourceForge, but am reluctant to try something whose
ancestry I know nothing about.
They mention "Cwrsync" as a Cygwin version of rsync.
It's possible the Bash shell in Windows 10 has an rsync
command as well. But that doesn't help you on Win7.
If you have source code, you could always compile it on
MinGW or Visual Studio. MinGW uses ./configure, while
Visual Studio would use a Project file.
And it looks like about as much fun as trying to figure
out the command line options for Robocopy.
The only time I've had rsync running here, is when Gentoo
contacts some server for Portage package management purposes.
Network takes a real pounding while it runs. For that application
of it, it seemed to be building some sort of index.
