backing up data on external usb HDDLocked
I have a shared drive on my network.The drive is mounted on a gentoo linux server.I now want to back up the content of the shared drive on to an external 80gb usb HDD.I have about 42 GB of data to backup but the drive will only take upto 4GB and stop with a failure error indicating that there insufficient space. On searching i did find out that it cannot backup more than 4gb because it formatted in FAT 32 filesystem.
I tried 3 times but getting the same result each time.And I’m reluctant (in fact i do not want to change NTFS).Can someone give me a solution.Even if it means backing up from my Gentoo server .I’ll appreciate if clear steps are given in case of Linux
I am trying to backup from XP box.And remember I also have win98SE boxes on my LAN
