I recently set up a FreeBSD 5.3 box running Samba to hold all of our
Windows users home directories. I've already had to restore a few
files from the daily backups because somebody hosed their files in one
way or another. Having hourly snapshots like this will be great.
Currently I will have to set up special Samba access to the snapshot
area which will make using them a bit harder, but having a '.snapshot'
directory inside each directory would be ideal. Great work!
