I don't usually do remote to local. So I set one up to give it a try.

I find I can easily copy all files/folders with uppercase and with spaces.

I just did:

C:\cwrsync\bin\rsync -zav -P --delete user at myurl.dom::testingtemp/

It copied the remote XP folder within Rsync label testingtemp called "THIS
IS A SPACE FILLED UPPER CASE FOLDER" and its contents to my local PC.

I renamed various remote folders to upper case and put spaces in names
within this folder.

I also did the command 

C:\cwrsync\bin\rsync -zav -P --delete
stuarth at /cygdrive/c/testtemp/FRED

All were copied 100%

I've never used the syntax :

"rsync -av rsync://remote/files /cygdrive/c/"

So maybe that is bugged?

Please do not CC me with replies. It just clutters up my inbox with
duplicate email. Thanks.
