No, we're using an own algorithm based on md5-hashes of 50kb chunks. This is for situations where setting up rsync would be too complicated (like syncing a single file between 2 windows clients). Also the rsync-daemon doesn't work on windows.

So, this is like rsync, only rather than using the network directly, it gives you files to mail by hand? I could see how that might be useful, but it would be helpful to include a direct comparison to rsync. Are you using the rsync algorithm?
