While I frequently run scheduled bash shell scripts via a bash.bat file as
you describe, I don't think it is necessary here... I think Trey can run
rsync.exe directly if he really wants to.
I tested running 'ls /cygdrive' from within a cmd.exe dos prompt and it
Microsoft Windows 2000 [Version 5.00.2195]

AUTOEXEC.BAT MSDOS.SYS ....
(I'm assuming rsync would work similarly to ls)
While I don't know the cygwin architecture details, it looks like the
/cygdrive functionality is a part of cygwin.dll and can be used without a
parent bash shell.
