Hi there,

Is there someone over there knows a method or script
that can copy a large volume of data (in folders) from PCs
to a samba server (suppose there is enough space there)?

I know using smbclient or smbtar can backup data on PCs
to samba server, but it is written in tar files.I wonder whether 
this method can handle a large folder, say, in 10GB size.

Also, using smbclient with mget and recurse on, one can
copy folders from PC to samba server. But in doing so,
it is in interactive mode and keeps asking yes/no to continue.
Is there a way to get rid of these prompts?
