The Windows build provided on the download page doesn't include the PyWin32 modules which support Windows ACLs. (These modules are: win32file, win32security, pywintypes, win32api, win32con.) Following some instructions I'd found on the mailing list (http://www.mail-archive.com/rdiff-backup-users@nongnu.org/msg04090.html), which almost worked for me out-of-the-box, I re-ran the final "setup.py py2exe --single-file" step with an additional -i argument specifying the above modules, and the resultant monolithic executable will indeed back up Windows ACLs.

I would attach it here, but for filesize restrictions.
