samba question


does anyone know if samba has a file size limit when it is backing up files on a network... I am trying to do a backup but it seems to get stuck when it is backing up shares that are large in size, by large I mean over 10 gig.

Thanks,

Dennis

Are you copying files between linux w/samba and win-based computer? If so I believe it is a problem of windows machine (some kind of memory leakage ?). I've seen the same when I've tried to copy ~20G from Win machine to samba server.

I have 3 20gig drives on a win2000 server that I mounted on my RH9 sever and I use Rsync to keep the files uptodate. This works well for me.
