Windows share permissions with Samba

I use Windows very little, and am not knowledgeable about it.
But I'm trying to use samba to backup my wife's laptop
on my CentOS server with BackupPC (and samba).

This runs fine, except that one directory/folder
is not backed up, even though I have specified that
it is to be shared.

Is each Windows XP folder "owned" by a user?
Can anyone point me to a document (online)
explaining Windows permissions in a simple way?

Also, can I use samba on the same server
with client Windows machines in different Workgroups?

You might have better luck on the BackupPC mailing list:

    https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/backuppc-users

I have Debian GNU/Linux machine and use Samba to share folders that are
used by Windows clients on my small home LAN.  I create back up and
archive images on the GNU/Linux machine from the shared disk to an
external disk using rsync and tar/gzip, respectively.  Samba has nothing
to do with these activities (the Windows clients are logged off when the
back up and archive images are created).

HTH,

David

I'll try there, but I am actually using samba rather than rsync
with my Windows client.
It works fine, except that it cannot access some folders
on the Windows machine:

BackupPC can use rsync to fetch files from a Windows machine.  But the
last time I tried, you had to use an older version of rsync on the
Windows machine.  See this thread:

 
http://www.mail-archive.com/backuppc-users <at> lists.sourceforge.net/msg1343
6.html

As I try to keep my Cygwin installations reasonably up-do-date, this was
a deal-breaker for me.  If they've fix it, please let me know.

HTH,

David

You are possibly missing linux-headers or kernel-headers package, try to 
install it and then try to compile samba.

Re: Reverse Veto Files - let's try again!

How would that work if you wanted to veto everything except
(as Charles suggested) jpeg files? If I did:

Veto Files= /*/
Allowed Files= /*.jpg/

If Veto takes precedence, this isn't going to do it, is it?

I think I'm answering my own question - without a not operator
in 'veto files', the allowed files must take precedence, mustn't
it?

you are obviously right. Fixed in all current branches (commit
7ee7ec3fd in master).

Thanks!

Yup, that would work fine for me - ie that any 'Allowed Files'
directive implies that all non-matching files are vetoed.

Anybody else got an opinion before I dig out my K&R?
