I have Linux RedHat 6.x, and I mounted a Windows 2008 R2 NFS share.
If I copy data from my Linux machine to Windows, that doesn't seem like any harm. But if I take that file that is in my exported NFS share (the share on Windows), and I copy it to another Windows machine that is not using NFS, can that file be corrupted just because they are different file systems?
I needed space on my Linux machine for a backup, I backup to the mounted drive, which is the NFS share on the Windows server, I will then take the copied over files which are now on my Windows machine and copy them to another Windows server, just regular CIFS and NTFS, right-click copy paste, From there I have backup software to put it on tape, I cannot at this time have the Linux machine to directly to the machine with the tape drive.
Of course, I need to be able to restore those files, but if moving them between file systems somehow corrupts them.
