RSYNC for Windows and CWRSync

Many of our customers choose GS RichCopy 360 Enterprise as an alternative for RSYNC for Windows.

RSYNC for windows is a great tool do not get me wrong. The main problem with it is that it lacks the performance that is offered in today’s technology and the fact that it is not very intuitive to get it working properly.

GS RichCopy 360 Enterprise works very similar to RSYNC and RSYCN for Windows  (CwRSync) yet it is much more robust and offers many features that RSYNC lacks.

GS RichCopy 360 Enterprise Features:

1) Robust performance using proprietary multi threading technology where several files can get copied simultaneously. What RSYNC completes in 3 hours, GS RichCopy 360 Enterprise can complete in a fraction of that time.

2) Files can be copied though a single (configurable) TCP port with the option to use AES encryption and compression or use SMB path (\\UNC).

3) Files can be replicated at block level or file level.

4) Runs as a service, can be scheduled to run at specific time and repeat on set criteria (fixed interval, every weekday, end of the month…etc).

5) Support environment variables.

6) Beside full automation and set it and forget it mentality, it can send email notifications when the copy job fails or successful or both.

7) Installation, configuration and working in matter of minutes.

8) Extremely easy and intuitive logical design. In addition to a powerful yet simple GUI, command line support is also supported out of the box.

9) Support for long path names, copies NTFS ACL permissions, and replicates file and folder attributes, date and time-stamps, copy open and locked files.

10) GS RichCopy 360 Enterprise is fully documented (admin guide and video library with many different examples) in addition to fully support by GuruSquad premier support.

Whether you are looking for RSYNC or CwRSync, you will find GS RichCopy 360 Enterprise by far a much better alternative when it comes to data replication and data migration projects.

If you are searching for an RSYNC for windows alternative, then we highly recommend that you download and trial GS RichCopy 360 Enterprise and we promise you that you will be very impressed by the results.
