I know I have been down this road before, but slightly differently this time.
I have a script to backup node-red stuff locally on the same machine.
As things go on, I am needing to now access a remote machine (probably a NUC, but who knows at this stage) and copy files from the machine to the remote machine.
It will be a USB drive and may not always be there.
I have the share set up on the remote machine.
showmount -e <ip address> shows me the share.
So, how I am stuck how to access that share.
Do I mount the share, or can I copy the files to the remote machine another way?
If I have to mount it, it isn't too much of a problem, but it makes it slightly more complicated, but not impossible.
So for now I am wanting to understand the options of how to copy the files (directories?) between machines.
