Rsync problems


Hi,

Just wondering if anyone out there is experiencing cygwin rsync hanging when running backups?

I am running windows vista with cygwin installed and an ssh connection to my ubuntu server in the cupboard. This has 1TB of raid space which I would like to use as a backup server amongst other things.

So I run my backup from the cmd line.. it runs for approx 1.5hrs and dies on me without any error messages. Simply just halts on uploading to the server.

I thought it was a network issue but it seems to be a problem with cygwin and rsync according to many of the posts on the net.

Anyone having this and maybe got around it somehow?

Thanks for any help


Im running cygwin version 1.5.25-15 and rsync version 3.0.4

Also can I ask what version of rsync do people recommend using? I hear that older version are more bug free than recent releases.
