Thanks DebianJoe, fatmac & the3pun15h3r for a warm welcome. Only a few hours aware from have a #! fresh install on my main machine .... currently waiting for my alternate (i.e rsync) backup to finish
I was wondering if people have any suggestions for backing up a Windows machine over SSH.
So I have a pretty simple backup script that runs as a cron job every night and it is:
rsync -azhv /company/shared_files/ /mnt/ext_drive/backups/shared_files/company_share_backup_"`date +\%Y-\%m-\%d`"
And previously the size of the backup was around 20 gigs and it ran in around ten minutes but as of two days ago it is 80 gigs and it takes 6+ hours to run. What could have gone wonky?
