I am using rsync to backup a windows snapshot...I got this working great.  my command line is:
rsync --chmod=ugo=rwX -rlt --delete /cygdrive/V/ jaxback02::Test/  1>>\\jaxback02\f$\backup_logs\%computername%_rsync.log

This works great for my testing.  i need to change the remote directory now.  I need it to say something like jaxback02::u:/%computername% blah blah...  We have folders setup on the U: drive that are sorted by server name.  I can't seem to get this to work.  I keep getting unkown module errors every time.

@ERROR: Unknown module 'u'
rsync error: error starting client-server protocol (code 5) at main.c(1504) [sender=3.0.3]

I get these types of errors.

rsync -rlt -v --stats --progress --delete /cygdrive/V/ jaxback02::u/%computername%//  1>>\\jaxback02\f$\backup_logs\%computername%_rsync.log

u: is an actual drive on the destination server.
