Thanks Matt,

But I found it useful in another way.

I mounted the pfs one directory deeper in the filesystem and
configured snap shots to be taken there.

/Backup1/pfs/www-hot      /Backup1/www-5mbak/www-hot    null    rw
         0       0

/Backup1/pfs/@@-1:00005   454G   287G   168G    63%

Now I run cron every 5 mins to execute a script that rsyncs files from
the main development server and then snapshot the pfs to

I shared /Backup1/www-5mbak read only using samba and the developers
can now get 5mis backup of any file  for 2 days.

To give them a daily backup access the same way I guess i will have to
configure a mirror and configure daily snapshots for them right?

I might get rid of backuppc if I can store at least 2 years worth of
Daily backups like this.

Is there any way to find the space used by a single PFS and the space
used by its snapshots ?
