Starting this repo to keep notes about how I got rsync working on Windows.
My next planned step is to create a fully-automated script which will help anyone to run this on their machine (rather than distributing binaries, which I don't want to do).
How to get RSync on Windows:

- (you can double check the list of required dlls using dependency walker)
- uninstall cygwin
How to use

rsync -qrlP --delete local-folder user@windows-server-ip:/cygdrive/c/target-folder --rsync-path=c:/tools/rsync.exe
