cwRsync is an implementation of Rsync for Windows. Rsync uses a file transfer technology specified by the Rsync algorithm, transferring only changed chunks of files over the network. cwRsync can be used for remote file backup and synchronization from/to Windows systems. cwRsync contains Cygwin DLLs and a compiled version of Rsync on Cygwin. A client GUI is also provided as of the version 5.0.0.

History[edit]

The first version of cwRsync was developed to address requirements of an internal project at Color Line, and is published as a free solution on the mailing list for Rsync users. cwRsync became very popular quickly[2][3][4][5][6][7] and is kept updated with newer versions of underlying solutions.

As of November 22, 2011, Itefix Consulting decided to deliver cwRsync binary installers as paid downloads, to cover expenses/time spent.[8] A barebone distribution is available for free.[9]

Release History:

  • cwRsync 5.2.2: January 13, 2014[10]
  • Initial release: March 11, 2003[11]

Features[edit]

cwRsync comes in two versions: cwRsync client and cwRsync server. You can use the cwRsync client to initiate Rsync transfers from your host, while the cwRsync server makes your files/directories available for upload/download for Rsync transfers. cwRsync client contains a Secure channel Wrapper to set up external secure ssh channels.

Rsync client GUI has following features:

  • Specify sources and destination (local, remote ssh and daemon modes)
  • Specify filters and a subset of options
  • Create rsync command according to your specification
  • Run rsync on the fly both in production and test mode
  • Create batch files for task scheduling
  • Save and load your favorite rsync settings as profiles
  • Language localization
