I have a Windows 7 box that I want to back up to an Ubuntu machine.
I have mounted a Windows share on the Ubuntu box (using CIFS/Samba), and I want to use a cron job to rsync what's on the mounted share to another directory on the Ubuntu box.
1) What would be the recommended rsync settings to copy the folders and files on the Windows share onto the Ubuntu box - bearing in mind that these files may have to be restored back to the Windows machine in the future.
rsync -av /mnt/winshare /home/user/winbackup
2) Are there any pitfalls/things to watch out for, with backing up files from Windows 7 on Ubuntu?
