After installing cwrsync, you are likely to get this error when you try to run this sample command from the command line.
rsync -avz -e ssh email@example.com:/home/ycsoftware /cygdrive/z/ycsoftware/
“rsync: Failed to exec ssh: No such file or directory(2)” cwrsync
The reason you are getting this is because for some reason rsync is not able to find the path to the ssh.exe file. You should change it to something like this:
rsync -avz -e "\"/cygdrive/c/program files/cwrsync/bin/ssh.exe\"" firstname.lastname@example.org:/home/ycsoftware /cygdrive/z/ycsoftware/
