Run under Windows 7/8?

Is there anyway to get the current version (2.2.8) Xtrabackup to run in Windows?

I have a sales department needing to have copies of their production MySQL server instance on laptops that don’t always have internet connectivity, and they have to be windows. I was hoping to rsync the databases backup files and restore with Xtrabackup on the laptops


Percona products are not supported for Windows. But you can take a backup and prepare it on linux server and then copy files to the Windows server. That might work but need to test.
