I'm experimenting with the Windows build on your home page on my Win 7

I ran into trouble with file names that contain Chinese characters such
as minimal example 'test_sync/我报.txt'.
Running rdiff-backup yields the following error:
C:\opt\rdiff-backup-1.3.3>rdiff-backup.exe  "E:\test_sync" "E:\rdiff_target"
Found interrupted initial backup. Removing...
Exception 'Path: E:\test_sync/??.txt
Index: ('??.txt',)

On Linux, this example works as I would expect it to. I am wondering if
this is fixable without changing my locale or if that would even help.
Since this is a Python program, I doubt it would make a difference,
would it?
In any case, it doesn't seem to depend on the console I use (cmd doesn't
display the characters, ConEmu does).

I am also wondering if there's a manual for building on Windows. The
wiki doesn't seem to be available anymore and the setup.py script that I
found in https://github.com/pgodel/rdiff-backup doesn't work for me,
probably because I don't know how to properly include librsync.

Hope you have some advice.

If you are backing up files with unusual characters (letters) in the filenames, it is necessary that Windows fully supports these characters from the command line. If they can't be viewed correctly from the command line then they can't be backed up correctly by TimeDicer. The solution is to add the relevant language for 'non-Unicode programs' (e.g. Chinese) under the Administrative tab in Region and Language setting of Control Panel (for Windows 7, this is found under 'Clock, Language, and Region').
