Hi Dave,

In the future I think I'll look at it. Unfortunately however the web
application is being migrated off that particular server so the
question was more to satisfy my own curiosity ;-)

I work in a Windows based IT department (the only Linux stuff we have
is a couple of servers I've put in - and they usually end up getting
replaced with a Windows box sooner or later whether I like it or not
lol), and unfortunately that's the OS the backup storage device is
running. Rsync server component won't work on Windows will it?
