Automatic backup for SAMBA-shared files

Automatic backup for SAMBA-shared files

Hi there,
One of my older customers has a problem :
He thinks that files aren't safe on his UNIX box while he works on them
via a Windoof box.
In particular, there is a need to autogenerate backupfiles from
___EVERY___ opened file shared by SAMBA.
Does anybody know how ?

(e.g. if you open a file "file.txt" on a samba-server, the samba-server
should generate "file.txt.bak" automatically)


1. samba share mnt automatic?

Is it possible to automatically (during boot) to mount a samba share which
exists on a Win2k machine during startup? I can do it interactively using
the mount command but I'm not sure about the entry which would be required
in fstab since it requires a password and samba would not have started yet?
