I have been doing some tests with rsync on windows (client) to backup
to a linux server.
I started out with cwrsync, but ran into the dreaded "File name too
long (91)" error. Apparently due to an issue with the cygwin portion
of it. So I was then testing with a newer version of cygwin (1.7 beta)
as the long file name issue was resolved.
In testing that with some large files (PST in this case), rsync seems
to take over the whole file, and not just the differences.
my command i used was:
rsync -av --chmod u+wrx "/cygdrive/c//Documents and Settings/User/
This was just a local sync.
Curious what ppeople are using for rsync on Windows with long file
And also curious as to why rsync wuld pull over the whole PST file
