Backup windows sharing in fedora

Hi all,

I like a script for backup of windows 10 shares for an external hd in fedora? I don't have idea how to do this.

You will need to take a look at smb, mount, and cp. Start by googleing "samba bash script". That is a start.

Looking on google I found this method:


echo "Mounting"
mkdir -p /mnt/Backup
mount -t cifs // -o usernamer=Admin,password="" /mnt/Backup
cp -Rap /mnt/Backup /media/Backup/Admin
umount /mnt/Backup

but to this method must be root and run the script when it does not become root, now I'm discovering as I get the script as root.
