Yes, but when I checked rsync some time ago it seemed me that it not
compares both repositories.  One repository will made a mirror of the
other but what if there are newer files on the zip drive and other files
are newer on the desktop?  I want the program always use the latest
version of a file regardingless where it is.  In my opinion this is
not possible with rsync.

Kind regards
