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:

      .SYNOPSIS
    
      Create a .ignore file for a package binary.
    
      .DESCRIPTION
    
      Chocolatey automatically creates a "shim" in a special folder, on your
      machine's PATH, for any executables found in the package's installation
      directory. This is helpful when installing ZIP packages or any kind of
      command line tools.
    
      Chocolatey can be instructed to ignore a particular binary by creating a file
      at the same path with the same name as the binary to ignore, except ending
      with the file extension ".ignore".
    
      This function creates that file, given the binary's path.
    
      .PARAMETER Path
    
      The path of the binary to ignore.
    
      This parameter also accepts multiple paths or pipeline input.
    
      .EXAMPLE
    
      Install-IgnoreBin -Path "foo.exe"
    
      .EXAMPLE
    
      Install-IgnoreBin -Path $foo, $bar
    
      .EXAMPLE
    
      Get-ChildItem "$content\foo\*.exe" | Install-IgnoreBin

      .SYNOPSIS
    
      Create a .gui file for a package binary.
    
      .DESCRIPTION
    
      Chocolatey automatically creates a "shim" in a special folder, on your
      machine's PATH, for any executables found in the package's installation
      directory. This is helpful when installing ZIP packages or any kind of
      command line tools.
    
      Chocolatey can be instructed to treat a particular binary as a GUI application,
      meaning it will START the binary in a separate process and not block the
      console, by creating a file at the same path with the same name as the binary,
      except ending with the file extension ".gui".
    
      This function creates that file, given the binary's path.
    
      .PARAMETER Path
    
      The path of the binary to treat as a GUI application.
    
      This parameter also accepts multiple paths or pipeline input.
    
      .EXAMPLE
    
      Install-GuiBin -Path "foo.exe"
    
      .EXAMPLE
    
      Install-GuiBin -Path $foo, $bar

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.
