cwRsync - Rsync for Windows
Rsync normally uses ssh for communication. It requires no special privileges for installation. You must, however, have a working ssh system. Alternatively, rsync can run in `daemon' mode, listening on a socket. This is generally used for public file distribution, although authentication and access control are available.

cwRsync server only
You should update the configuration file according to your needs. If you have defined uploadable modules (read only = false), you have to make sure that Rsync Server has correct permissions on directories behind those modules. You can use Prep a Dir for Upload wizard from the start menu for that purpose.
cwRsync installs rsync server as a service (RsyncServer) with following parameters :
--config rsyncd.conf --daemon --no-detach
Default start mode is manual.
a client GUI with the following features is available from the start menu:
- Specify sources and destination (local, remote ssh and daemon modes)
- Specify filters and a subset of options
- Create rsync command according to your specification
- Run rsync on the fly both in production and test mode
- Create batch files for task scheduling
- Save and load your favorite rsync settings as profiles
- Language localization
Client installation includes also a batch file starting rsync in a right environment. You can customize it according to your needs. Man pages in html format are also available from start menu. cwRsync FAQs from this site can also be helpful.
In addition, as rsync people suggest, you can try Google for resources :-) I give also some pointers to rsync website :
