It looks like I will need a windows backup solution for a small project soon. As you probably know I don’t typically do Windows so I am reaching out. I typically use rsync for most of my backup needs. To be more specific I like to use rsnapshot which is a wrapper around rsync. Have you ever wanted rsync on windows? What did you use.

I am aware of several options.

There is of course cygwin. Beyond cygwin it seems nasbackup ( and deltacopy ( were the best options I could find.

Do you have any suggestions? What other solutions for windows backup have you used. I don’t have a specific reason but I just cringe at the thought of using windows internal backup mechanism.
