Alternative to rsync for Windows...

I have a WAN connection (512-1024Kbps) that I need to send some large files through using a couple of Windows boxes. I need something that works over a really slow connection and works like rsync where it will pick up where it left off if the connection is broken.

Does anyone have any GUI tools they've used in the past that are multi-threaded and can work over a really slow connection with the 'resume' feature?

I used one called "Puresync" which had everything I needed, but over the slow connection it would sometimes crash and then a person would have to be there to restart it. I have also used things like Unisonsync but it's a little more tedious in that it requires a server at each end to be setup for this and make a large profile for the unisonsync user....

Any other ideas?
