Limitations: only supports one way sync, which is fine for backup purposes.

License: MIT (http://rclone.org/licence/)

The number of platforms this covers is impressive. Cross-platform (BSD, Linux, Mac, Solaris).

I've long held that RSYNC on Windows this is an important problem to solve.

Unfortunately, it's not clear to me that this does delta copying (only what's changed) as the RSYNC reference suggests. The FAQ is a little unclear on this fact.
