Re: Backup data from Terastation to tape
- Hi Dave,
Thanks a lot for your help. I am pretty clueless about
Linux and Samba, so if you have a little extra time,
can you point me to some reference that can show me

needed to be tweaked. I want window to be able to set
the archive bit so that differential backup will work.
