Subject: RE: Tech: Computer backup - Win10, UPS, external HDD
Yes, I've used Samba (SMB file access) for years. I used it for Win XP then Win 7 backup - including the password system I described - and I could use it in Win 10 if I had to. But because of the risk of ransomeware - which can encrypt Windows shares - I don't want any permanent Windows shares. (Or not writable ones.)
