DeltaCopy Server File Permission Fix

DeltaCopy Service is a wonderful rsync wrapper for windows OS use. The only problem I have come across thus far is file permissions. It seems that files are only given access to the service user and that includes the system account if selected.

The Fix:

Add a windows system environment variable of “CYGWIN” with value “nontsec”. Stop and restart the DeltaCopy Service and you should be in business. This fix will inherit folder permissions while granting the service user full permissions to the files and folders modified.
