Rsync normally does time/size comparisons but can do contents with a switch
AFAIK. It also can't do unicode file names since it uses the ANSI file
system interface. Another bone headed thing it does is sets strange
permissions on target files and does't propagate inheritance. So it's good
but it's not all it's cracked up to be. This only applies to the Cygwin
version, I haven't tried others.
