When on Unix, I normally use rsync for that: http://rsync.samba.org/ . It runs 
fine on cygwin. Caveat: I never tried to use rsync between two Windows hosts 
while attempting to preserve permissions and ACLs , which I'm hazy about their 
semantics in MSWin, but on Unix systems, rsync has an option to preserve 
permissions and user/group ownerships of files.
