What is rsync?
rsync is a tool that provides fast, efficient file transfers. rsync is available for all major OS platforms; it is natively included on Linux, Mac OS X and BSD, and is available for MS Windows users through Cygwin. rsync can be run in conjunction with SSH for secure, encrypted file transfers. rsync supports resume of failed transfers, a life-saver on large file transfers. The versatility of rsync is unequaled -- it provides a vast array of options to help you customize your file transfer operation to meet your exact needs.
