Dear Abdul,

AFAIK, cwRsync accepts the same command line argument as rsync on Linux 
does. The only difference is that you don't have built-in SSH. You have 
three options:

1. Make your rsync run as a daemon on CentOS and then from Windows 
connect to port 873
2. Download CYGWIN and use its SSH client
3. Download DeltaCopy from 
(, which is another 
packing for rsync on Windows and has a GUI interface.
