discreet? i don't think that word means what you think it means.
Watch out for the Manners Taliban!
Isn't it amazing how so many people can type "linuxpakistan.net" into their browsers but not "google.com"?

You can setup Samba Share with password protection for each user and create backup.bat file which will be run when user logout from system.

Dear All,

There is a solution which I find for the backup of windows PC, Yes, I really love Linux but in some enterprise environment 85% or more uses Windows as their Primary OS, So I would like to share a simple and small script you just needs to save it with some "X.bat" using notepad program and use windows schedule program to take automatic backup.

I hope that will help some one in the coming days:)

Quote,
@echo off
:: variables
set drive=d:\backup
set backupcmd=xcopy /s /c /d /e /h /i /r /y

echo ### Backing up My Documents...
%backupcmd% "%USERPROFILE%\My Documents" "%drive%\My Documents"

echo ### Backing up Favorites...
%backupcmd% "%USERPROFILE%\Favorites" "%drive%\Favorites"

echo ### Backing up the Registry...
if not exist "%drive%\Registry" mkdir "%drive%\Registry"
if exist "%drive%\Registry\regbackup.reg" del "%drive%\Registry\regbackup.reg"
regedit /e "%drive%\Registry\regbackup.reg"

:: change to the destination drive first
D:
:: your parent backup directory
drive=d:\backup

echo ### Searching for files to clean up...
cd %drive%
dir /s/b/ad \cookies > %drive%\cleanup.txt
dir /s/b/ad \temp > %drive%\cleanup.txt
dir /s/b/ad \history > %drive%\cleanup.txt

echo ### Deleting cookies, temp files and history from backup dir
for /f "delims=" %%J in (%drive%\cleanup.txt) do rd "%%J" /Q/S

echo Cleanup complete

echo Backup Complete!

Unquote,
I am also working to install an ftp server, once done will let you guys knows.

Thanks
Adil
