    Backup file linux ==> windows:

    1) create a network share on your windows PC
    2) Use smbmount on linux to mount the share.
    3) Use the tar program to make a backup of your linux files and store it on the monted windows share.

    Backup Windows ==> Linux:

    1) Install samba on your linux PC and create a samba share.
    2) create a network drive on windws for this samba share and save the backup file(s) on this network drive. You can use a backup software of your choice for windows.

    No, when i write ".... on linux" it means you will have to do this on your linux PC, not on windows.
