comment Why do computers count from zero?
To be completely pedantic, you're comparing a verb with a noun. I think "tally" and "count" really are synonymous, and both can be used as either a verb or noun.

comment Mirror/Backup from SSH/SFTP to Windows
@stefan.at.wpf No, the rsync daemon runs as the user who connected by SSH. It would only have root privileges if root started it as a service on the server (and then you would use the rsync protocol to connect instead of SSH). But even in this mode, the rsync daemon can be configured to run as a less-privileged user.

comment Malwarebytes vs Anti-Virus?
What about Malwarebytes Pro? It has an active scanning mode which is just like a traditional "anti-virus" program.
