Although this is generally a safe rule of thumb for us UNIXey types, there
isn't any reason why it shouldn't work, or why it would definitely perform
poorly. There could be a lot of factors - like the hardware/network aren't up
to the task. But as a backup filesystem, I can't imagine that copying to that
share would greatly impact performance on the Galaxy server, unless it's a
really underpowered server.
