I would like to back up a partition over a network, as it's just a bit too big for a CD. I downloaded the Linux System Rescue CD, seeing that it can do stuff similar to that, but I can't figure out how to quite go the distance to get it to work correctly...
My network currently consists of:
- 2 Windows XP machines (One of which is the computer I'm wanting to partition).
- 2 Windows 7 machines.
I know the networking is a bit easier for Windows XP than Windows 7, so I've already created a share point on the spare Windows XP machine to copy the share to.
Specifically, I'm struggling with the following:
- How to I mount the network share from a linux command prompt?
- Is Partimage the correct tool to use for this purpose?
- How do I tell Partimage to use the now mounted SMB share as it's location to store?
