Rsync between Windows Folders

Posted by Troy Williams on Sat 12 March 2016 Updated on Sat 12 March 2016

Following from the last post, here is an example script that uses cwrsync to sync a network share and another folder. I had to map the network share to a drive before I could use it properly.

    @ECHO OFF
    rem uuid = 7bf0dca6-5cde-4e41-b1d5-d75f4002abb5

    SET CWRSYNCHOME=C:\PROGRAM FILES\CWRSYNC
    SET CYGWIN=nontsec
    SET CWOLDPATH=%PATH%
    SET PATH=%CWRSYNCHOME%\BIN;%PATH%
    SET HOME=C:\Program Files\cwRsync\bin
    SET USERNAME=troy
    SET RSYNC_RSH=ssh.exe

    rem Use the --dry-run option to show what would happen
    rem sync from server to local

    echo Pulling changes from the iBlast pdf papers

    rsync -vrt  /cygdrive/w/documents/ "/cygdrive/c/my documents/research"

    pause
