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?
