The following Rsync downloads are for users wanting to setup their own Rsync Server for use with BackupAssist for Rsync. For full instructions, including how Rsync works, best practices for offsite backup, options for data hosting and help with setting up Windows and Linux Rsync Servers, please download the BackupAssist for Rsync Whitepaper.

To use Rsync to synchronise data offsite from one machine to another via a LAN or a WAN, requires both client-side software on the machine where the data is located and server-side software on the machine where the data is to be stored.


Client-side software
BackupAssist comes deployed with the necessary Rsync libraries, so no additional software is required.
 
Server-side software (where you are hosting your data)
You can host your data on any Windows or Linux machine. Additional software is required for Windows machines.
