Rsync uses a delta-transfer algorithm which provides a very fast method for bringing remote files into sync. It does this by sending just the differences in the files across the link, without requiring that both sets of files are present at one of the ends of the link beforehand. At first glance this may seem impossible because the calculation of diffs between two files normally requires local access to both files.

This packages provides rsync.exe, ssh.exe, and ssh-keygen.exe.

To install cwRsync (Free Edition), run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install rsync

To upgrade cwRsync (Free Edition), run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade rsync

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
