Hi,

hardBackup is a solution to make Dirvish available on a windows system.
Initial version consists of following components:

dirvish-expire.exe (compiled version of modified dirvish-expire.pl 1.2.1)
dirvish-locate.exe (compiled version of modified dirvish-locate.pl 1.2.1)
dirvish-runall.exe (compiled version of modified dirvish-runall.pl 1.2.1)
dirvish.exe (compiled version of modified dirvish.pl 1.2.1)
bzip2.exe
cygpath.exe
du.exe
find.exe
gzip.exe
plink.exe
puttygen.exe
rm.exe
rsync.exe
sechaw.exe (Secure Channel Wrapper from ITeF!x)
ssh-keygen.exe
ssh-keyscan.exe
ssh.exe
cygcrypto-0.9.8.dll
cygiconv-2.dll
cygintl-3.dll
cygminires.dll
cygwin1.dll
cygz.dll
perl58.dll (Active State Perl 5.8.6)

I've collected all those components into a nice free installer, which also
sets up a working environment in terms of batch files. Modifications I made
to dirvish scripts are related to the path-handling and setting up external
ssh tunnels.

This initial version might not be a very user friendly one. However, if you
know how Dirvish operates, you should then be able to set up a working
environment within minutes. Please don't forget to run all manual dirvish
commands from 'hardBackup Command Prompt'. hardBackup is tested on an XP PC
with a local directory and a Windows 2003 server with cwRsync server
w/openssh as clients. It works as expected.

hardBackup stands for 'Hard link-Rsync-Dirvish-Backup'. Any other
suggestions are welcome !!
