We have Ubuntu 11.10 PCs as workstation at our office. I access my accounting program, Pastel, using RDP. The server where it's running on is Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard Terminal Server.
At present when I need to do my backups for Pastel, I have to physically insert the USB into the server in our data centre. This is not ideal because of access restrictions.
My question – how do I backup from my own pc on remote desktop? Surely it should be possible to insert into the local USB but backup a file on the remote server? Is there some other way of accessing the drive locally?
