Re: windows dynamic storage

2007/2/27, Craig Sanders <cas@taz.net.au>:
i've never used WDS.

the only thing i can think of is to mount the windows drives onto your
linux box over the network (i.e. smbfs), and use rsync to back them up.
rsync only copies the files that have changed since the last backup, and
you can even configure it to do versioned backups - so you can keep the
last N versions of a changed file.

alternatively, use amanda or some other tape backup program to do the
backups. if you don't have a tape drive, amanda can be configured to
backup to disk.

thx.. after long research - what you say is what we will probably do..
we will use cygwin on the windows server so it will run rsync daemon.
what is rather pesimistic is that copying big files through even 1gbit
uplink with cygwin (that resides on windows ;/) is v. complicated to
rely on ;)
