Thought I would let folks know that the latest CVS version of the rsync ACLs
patch works with Cygwin.
My guess is that they will roll it in the next release (2.6.8 I believe).
If your interested in being able to rsync and still preserve ACLs when
rsyncing between Windows
and Linux/Unix, this latest release does the trick.
Don't know about you, but this eliminates my need to hang on to bulky
ntbackup files and/or using robocopy
to fix ACLs after rsyncing. It also makes BackupPC way more powerful a
solution for windows backups
as you can now preserve security settings when backing up and restoring.
Here is the link to the mail list thread if your interested.
