mmm, I'm not aware of a native rsync protocol for windows, how can I set this up? maybe it will solve all my issues without workarounds

I want to run an ssh cmd on the remote server that will mount the image locally into a folder to which I can access via rsync.

I need the content of the image, hence the mount part.
