	If you find it, let us all know about it. :-)

	You should use something like:


	When accessing use the "Administrator" account, something
like the below line should work:

$ smbclient -U Administrator -L "\\server\c$"

	You can't do lots of things with administrative shares,
in some cases you can't change it (and you can't unshare it).
The permissions usually point to the Domain Administrators and
Machine Administrators.

	For backups, search cwrsync, is a nice tool that allow you
to run rsync in Windows Machines, it could really help you out. :)
