Backup and data protection discussion at its finest.

any possibility to synchronize Data to external Drives eSata / USB

Postby Store » Fri Jul 21, 2017 7:54 pm

Hi their ....

i just have established an external backup to my IcyBox connected to the eSata Port. During i arranged the backup i saw that theire is
no possibility to do just a syncronisation or other backup methods. It is just possible to more a less copy the Data to the external drive !
Is there any app available which can synchronize Data to external Drives ? Or do other kind of Backup to external drives ?

Thanks ...

upps ... by clicking through I found no real Backup Solution at all for my AS6104T !?!?!
no matter what I choose, internal, external, press button, all of them just "Copy" data from one or more folders to one or more others. Thats it !!
Do I have to install software or any app to be able to make i.e. scheduled, incremental, sync Backups ?

Hi
it seems that you missed the "archive mode/incremental backup" in external backup parameters.

You should enable "Archive mode (incremental backup)" in the last step (ADM web -> Backup & Restore -> External Backup). Of course, you can setup a schedule for this backup action.

Hi ,
thanks for the answers. The thing is, I have no parameter "Archive mode", but I found parameter "step by step storage"
I will use this and check it out. However, the "Asustor Help" does not give full information for the Backupparamateres.
Can anybody explain me what will happen if i chosse "replication of Sparse-Files" as well ?

Thank you ...

Please take a look here
