Since I upgraded the SSD on my main desktop I have a spare 480GB solid state drive. So I put this spare SSD into an external drive enclosure and connected it to the USB3 port on my Linksys router. Then I went into the router configuration and set it up as External Storage. Obviously the router runs on Linux as the drive shows up as sda1.
I was able to Map the drive from Windows 10 and then copy over my Pictures folder to it. That gives me another backup of my digital photos. I then went into the Thinkpad that runs Debian and was able to connect over the LAN to the external drive using SAMBA. I then copied a few folders from the external drive to the Thinkpad.
This is the first time I've done this sort of copying without a thumbdrive so it's pretty cool.
