Copy files with partial resume support? (Win/Cygwin)

Copy files with partial resume support? (Win/Cygwin)

Just curious if anyone knows of a tool that'll copy files, and should the file get interrupted, have it resume where it's left off the next time it's invoked.

"rsync will do this for you, over a samba share or over SSH. See man rsync on your system for the gory details. rsync is available as a Cygwin package.

Use -P or --partial for resuming an interrupted transfer.

There are lots of rsync questions already on this site; see superuser.com/questions/tagged/rsync for examples of how others are using it."

Hrmm, just found RoboCopy. Might be worth looking into!
