I have installed CYGWIN in my windows 2000 machine .I want to automate the RSYNC backup .The rsync --password-file=filename doesn't seems to work .If i schedule the backup , the rsync asks for password at the scheduled time .Please help me to automate the Rsync without asking password. or else how do you set the password in the RSYNC_PASSWORD file?

Thanks & Regards,
