Rsync keeps copying everything to the server at at
Wed Oct 1 19:54:28 MDT 2014

Do i need to have a rsync server to make this work? Honestly i was thinking it was the easiest way to use rsync in my environment. The purpose is to make a backup to the v:\ drive on a Windows server from my documents during the logoff time. The issue is I can not install anything on the server because corporate policies. Any advice? You have more experience maybe can Share good options to make this implementation. Thanks in Advance
