I am not sure whether or not this subject is posted in the right forum.
I need to copy the entire contents of a partition on a networked windows machine (ex: \\10.1.42.xx\d:) and p7zip it into "\home\jeff\dump" folder on my mint box. The compressed file should be maximum deflated, save full path info of the source files and folders and have a date stamp in the filename (ex: backupfile28032014.7z )
Is this easily done and if so, would anyone post a script exaple? Thanks!
