Rsync & ssh on MS windows

I use rsync and ssh to sync things between my Linux and Unix servers.
I like the security and ease of use of rsync with ssh.
Is there a rsync that does the same thing that would work with MS Windows?
I would like to sync up some data directory into a windows box with a script running on the Unix/Linux boxes.
The only thing that always remain the same are the changes.

Re: Rsync & ssh on MS windows


If you go to and download the setup file you can install ssh and rsync on your Microsoft systems. I have 2 systems at home that are XP running cygwin, openssh, and rsync. I backup one filesystem to the other.
