No, I guess you miss my point. Especially considering I didn't make 
it quite clear. I have a backup system in place. It knows which files 
to copy, where they are and where to put them back when needed. That 
involves many .ini files, so I can restore programs and don't have to 
reconfigure them. The use of 'mount -m' is no big deal, but it's not 
so easy (automatic) to handle as merely hauling files.

What??? There are obstacles in the way of using network shares over 
ssh too??? Damn it, you can't do anything right, can you?
