Description

Users now have NASes even in home networks, it will be nice to allow users to erase such drives from their own computers. Suggested by mocean.

However there are a few problems:

  • In SMB shares under Windows, Quotas can be enforced
  • How do we enumerate mounted drives? Does the client need to be aware of the physical hardware on the server?

I have a patch that allows the selection of Network drives for unused space erasures. The condition is that the network drives must be mounted on the local computer as a drive letter. This has been committed in r1998.

However, proper documentation is required to state the situations where this will work and when it will not work.
