Installing RSync for Windows - the easy way:

  From: Saulius Grazulis [mailto:grazulis@akl.lt]
  Subject: Re: What to do?

  rsync --exclude .svn --archive --verbose OLD-WC/ NEW-WC/ --dry-run
  Will show you what rsync is going to do, without changing your new WC, and:

  rsync --exclude .svn -av OLD-WC/ NEW-WC/
  will do the job.

  NB. AFAIK, rsync also works on Windows, if not natively,
  then under Cygwin -- you can install it by "browse-and-click"
  from the CygWin site.

There's a packaged version of RSync for windows - cwRsync and a neat SSH server (copSSH) available from

   http://www.itefix.no

Look under the "Free Software" on the left-hand nav bar. They're packaged Cygwin ports but install and run like normal windows applications. They're MUCH easier to setup than full Cygwin.

Cheers

Use rsync, man. You will love it. It will pick just the modified files,
skipping .svn dirs, and upate your new WC in minutes, not days ;)

rsync --exclude .svn --archive --verbose OLD-WC/ NEW-WC/ --dry-run

Whill show you what rsync is going to do, without changing your new WC, and:

rsync --exclude .svn -av OLD-WC/ NEW-WC/

will do the job.

NB. AFAIK, rsync also works on Windows, if not natively, then under Cygwin --
you can install it by "browse-and-click" from the CygWin site.
