It is simple to set up a rsyncd server under Cygwin / WinX to feed
BackupPC. I normally install "full" cygwin to access rsyncd, but there
is a limited client available.

"Download and run cygwin-rsyncd- to install rsyncd
on your WinXX client for doing BackupPC backups."

At one time, the prepacked rsyncd client did not work on Win7 and later,
but I think that was fixed. Otherwise, install "full" cygwin and follow
the instructions for the prepacked rsyncd client.
