Installing Rsync on Windows

UPDATE (2015.12.31) - This method no longer works for newer versions of Git for Windows as they have changed the version of Msys that is being used. Rsync is a widely used tool to keep copies of files on multiple computers the same. It is considered a standard installed utility on most Linux distros today. There is currently no native version on Windows but thanks to several different ports you can get Rsync via Cygwin or MinGW.
