When I first started using Dirvish to backup Windows servers, I found I had
to set permissions: 0 in dirvish.conf else it would unlink every file.
(This behaviour may have changed since upgrading cygwin + rsync versions,
and there's probably a more elegant solution, but this does it for me.)

Use faster-dupemerge to relink your existing backups and reclaim space.
