rsync is a replacement for rcp (and scp) that has many more features. It uses the "rsync algorithm" which provides a very fast method for remote files into sync. It does this by sending just the differences in the files across the link, without requiring that both sets of files are present at one of the ends of the link beforehand.


Here are some of the tools to manage rsync easily.If you have any other rsync tools you can suggest.

grsync

Grsync is a GUI for rsync, the command line directory synchronization tool. It supports only a limited set of rsync features, but can be effectively used to synchronize local directories.

Backup Monitor

Backup Monitor is an rsync backup front-end with a Web interface, which emails reports with an attached summary or logfile. Its configuration system is simple to use and can back up single servers or entire server farms from a single machine. Custom email tags can be used to sort responses in your mail reader.

QSync

QSync is a Qt-based frontend to the rsync file transfer utility, with an emphasis on initial ease-of-use, but also with the ability to be just as powerful as rsync itself. It will eventually support many, if not all, of rsync's many options.

rsyncbackup

rsyncbackup is a handy tool for scheduled backups using rsync. rsyncbackup lets you easily setup multiple source folders and destinations, both locally, on your iPod or external firewire disk, or at a remote destination using ssh. rsyncbackup has no GUI, but is based on editing configuration files. The script is meant to be run in a crontab, so user interaction is not neccesary. Basic terminal skills are required to use the program.
