One solution is to use the Volume Shadow Service to always have your
files available. Its like making an LVM snapshot, but on Windows it has
the added benefit of avoiding file locking.
Since rsync is not VSS-aware like NTBackup, the key to integrating this
with rsync is to create a VSS image of the drive(s) daily (either
scheduled daily, or maybe pre-client?) and have that image mapped to a
different drive letter(s).
