Ubuntu :: Create Shell Script To Copy Contents Of A Shared Folder On A XP PC?
Apr 8, 2011
I was wondering if there would be a way for me to copy the contents of a shared folder that's running on an XP system using shell script. Actually, there are two shared folders that I want to do this with. I want to be able to launch the script and automatically copy all the contents of each folder into two separate folders on my ubuntu desktop. For example;
Lets say that I have Shared Folders A1 and A2 on my networked XP system and I have Folders B1 and B2 on my Ubuntu desktop. I want the script to automatically copy the contents of A1 into B1 and likewise for A2 and B2. During the copying, I want the script set up such that any pre-existing files in the B1 & B2 folders will automatically get overwritten by the ones copied from A1 & A2.Is there any possibilities of me achieving this?
I have a Windows maching with an attached NAS Drobo device. I have a linux maching running Ubuntu 11.04 and have edited the fstab file and been able to map the windows folders for the Drobo and they all mount up fine. On the Linux machine itself can access these folders and run music/video files from them. But when I'm at another computer and SSH into my Ubunutu maching, I can see the mounted folders using the ls command but I can't see the contents of those folders.
I'm using fedora8.When i mount shared folder on windows,it was mounting and i can browse the files and directories in terminal as i have full permissions on that.But,when i open the mounted directory in GNOME Environment,it was saying you did not have permissions to see the contents,every directory and file has been locked.
lately, after shifting to 10.04, when I copy files from the Ubuntu to my XP shared folders, it goes very very slow. i restarted the router and nothing changed. I can see the folders, but the copy speed is still very slow.
I have set up Ubuntu 10.04 with a data partition mounted as /share that I would like to make available to all users. I have only managed to do this so far by using chmod and chown, can I flag the folder so that all users can read and write from it automatically? I'm looking for something a bit like "Ignore Ownership" on a Mac.

i'm confronting atm. I need to create a folder where ppl can copy files and i need to be sure that those files cannot be deleted after they are copied there. The folder will be accessed over network, and i need to be sure no one will delete somebody else's files.Also i need to tell you that i'm working with regular users, so creating a folder for each user and chown/chmod-ing it won't do the trick(allready tried and ended up with a whole lot of files in the parent directory).I also tried chattr +a but that doesn't allow them to write new files in the folder.

I am attempting to make a shared folder for people that VPN into the network. This folder needs to be accessible to windows and mac machines. So far I have the VPN through ppptd working. I just don't know how to make a folder. I feel like this should be fairly easy. I am using Lucid Lynx server edition.
I wanted to enable file sharing in for one of my folders under the home directory. I noticed that the 'not shared' and 'shared' always defaulted back to 'not shared'. And now I see what looks like an electrical plug icon symbol over the folder icon symbol like I might see used for some of the root folders. What does the new icon indicate about the folder attributes and why does file sharing default to 'not shared'?
I would like to copy the contents of a directory into another. I don't want to copy the directory and all files and directories under it, but just the contents of the directory just as if it were a regular file. Doing cp -r target dest copies the directory and the entire hierarchy rooted in it. I get error if I do not include the -r option. (I am calling cp from within a C program.)
