Ok, I have this in fstab
//windows_mashine/Backup /backups cifs credentials=/root/.credentials,rw,_netdev,iocharset=utf8,uid=1000 0 0
I have rsnapshot in my cron which backups /etc/ and /usr/local/ and some other files to /backups
Recently I find that when other mashine is down and /backups cannot be mounted rsnapshot backups to physical folder /backups thus it eats partition / space. How can I avoid this?
Can I prevent any writing to /backups when it is not mounted (rsnapshot runs as root, since it need to backup some system files)
