But i know that one day when i was google hunting i found that the /etc/samba/smb.conf file (your share file) also can take some parameters (not there by default) that speeds up transfer. It has to do with buffer sizes, and timings. ... If i remember r...

I do have to agree with Using an external hard drive to backup. Its much easier than swapping DVDs. Until then, I'll just use my spanning MultiCD app. One thing I did notice though, Is that It don't exactly create a standard ISO image. It creates an image that can be burned with k3b or cdrecord just...

I always burn my stuff manually to DVD's like that ... plus I have a few external 500 GB disks here which I use as off-line backup, e.g. so the disks will only be active when I have stuff that I want to backup ... those disks don't run all the time.

Yeah, when right clikcing on anything i can't edit the menu. What a pitty. Since its so hard to click on the whitespace, "Add to pannel", "Mint Menu" to get your old gnomish functionality.
