Thread: Backup Linux Drive to Windows PC using SAMBA

  1. Backup Linux Drive to Windows PC using SAMBA

    Hello. I have setup a cron file to backup four directories to a windows
    computer mounted with smbfs as /mnt/winBackup

    Here is my sh script in /cron.daily/

    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    #!/bin/sh

    BLIST="personal music library apps"

    for d in $BLIST; do
    echo "preparing to backup $d"
    rsync --verbose --progress --stats --compress -recursive --times
    --perms --links --delete --exclude fstab /hd2/data/$d/
    /mnt/stadionBackup/$d/
    done

    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

    Two questions: (1) is this the best way to backup all my linux files to
    a PC nightly
    (2) it doesn't seem to be doing incremental backups, namely the entire
    files are replaced, even if I haven't touched them

    Any help will be much appreciated

    Thanks,

    Tim
