Setting up a new system backup (done several before and they all work fine). 
Windows 10 x64 (cygwin with rsync  version 3.1.2) backing up to ubuntu
server 16.04 (rsync 3.1.1).  Run test.bat from command window (run as
administrator) and it runs fine.Created scheduled task that runs test.bat
and it hangs at "msg checking charset: UTF-8" until the timeout.  I have
upped the timeout to 3000 with the same result.  The scheduled task is run
as administrator, with run with highest privileges checked. contents of
test.bat:rsync  --log-format="%1i %t %b of %l transferred for %f" --progress 
--timeout=300 -rltgoD --delete --partial-dir=./rsync_partial
