No. Run a network sniffer on a segment with Windows file sharing
going on and you'll see how much traffic it generates doing nothing.
Start doing something and the traffic goes through the roof.
Something has to generate and process all that traffic. That means
you're going to be seeing lots of system overhead.
Much better option would be to have a script that mirrors everything.
You could use smbclient but you'd be better off with something like
rsync. Hell rsync can probably even use smbclient since it was
written by Tridge.
