The windows implementation of rsync is called cwrsync.
@ECHO OFF REM Make environment variable changes local to this batch file SETLOCAL REM ** CUSTOMIZE ** Specify where to find rsync and related files (C:\CWRSYNC) SET CWRSYNCHOME=C:\Program Files (x86)\cwRsync REM Set CYGWIN variable to 'nontsec'. That makes sure that permissions on your windows machine are not updated as a side effect of cygwin operations. SET CYGWIN=nontsec REM Set HOME variable to your windows home directory. That makes sure that ssh command creates known_hosts in a directory you have access. SET HOME=%HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH% REM Make cwRsync home as a part of system PATH to find required DLLs SET CWOLDPATH=%PATH% SET PATH=%CWRSYNCHOME%\BIN;%PATH% REM Windows paths may contain a colon (:) as a part of drive designation and backslashes (example c:\, g:\). However, in rsync syntax, a colon in a REM path means searching for a remote host. Solution: use absolute path 'a la unix', replace backslashes (\) with slashes (/) and put -/cygdrive/- REM in front of the drive letter: REM REM Example : C:\WORK\* --> /cygdrive/c/work/* REM REM Example 1 - rsync recursively to a unix server with an openssh server : REM REM rsync -r /cygdrive/c/work/ remotehost:/home/user/work/ REM REM Example 2 - Local rsync recursively REM REM rsync -r /cygdrive/c/work/ /cygdrive/d/work/doc/ REM REM Example 3 - rsync to an rsync server recursively : REM (Double colons?? YES!!) REM REM rsync -r /cygdrive/c/doc/ remotehost::module/doc REM REM Rsync is a very powerful tool. Please look at documentation for other options. REM REM ** CUSTOMIZE ** Enter your rsync command(s) here rsync -r -u --delete -v "/cygdrive/C/External Drives/Secondary Media/Mp3s" "/cygdrive/E"
|-u||Update files that need updating (rather than just copying everything)|
|--delete||Delete files in the destination that are not in the source.|
|-v||Verbose. More info, but not too much info.|
|-n||Test run. Don't actually do anything.|
