  And this is a problem?! Seriously, I think Eric meant he backs two
Windows machines up to one Linux machine.
  I don't like Windows Backup at all. I tend to go at that backwards; I
use smbmount to mount shared Windows drives to the Linux box and back
that up with tar. Just don't use the samba smbtar utility. It's a
little faster than glacial migration.
