I followed the exact instructions at :


which read (in part) :

	rsync -r --delete --exclude=2008 --exclude=mactex* 
rsync://somehost/some/path/ /your/local/dir

which after instantiating to reality became :

	"E:\Layered products\Synametrics Technologies\DeltaCopy\rsync.exe" -r 
--delete --progress --exclude=2008 --exclude=mactex* 
rsync://guiling.fr/texlive/ /TeX/Live/2009/Mirror

(note --progress added only today, after capturing this incantation
in a Windows' shortcut).
