I compiled and installed rsync 2.6.2 from source (the site's download
page) today, under Cygwin 1.5.9-1 / Windows 2000 Professional SP4.
Initial testing shows that it operates properly and smoothly, and that
Wayne's bugfix for the daemon mode / --backup problem I reported earlier
did the trick... --backup is working fine, no extraneous tildes.
Also, and this may be of interest to any other people forced to backup
Windows servers from time to time, cwRsync - which is VERY handy in that
among other things, it automagically creates a Windows service to run
rsync in daemon mode for you - operates just fine if you replace its
cygwin1.dll and rsync.exe with the 1.5.9-1 version of cygwin1.dll and a
copy of rsync compiled from source.
I stopped my existing cwrsync service, did the dll and rsync.exe
replacements, and restarted the service - no problems, everything seems
to be running smoothly.
Hope this helps somebody!
