[APP] GoodSync for WD My Cloud. Backup and file synchronization

GoodSync is a backup and file synchronization program. It is used for synchronizing files between two directories, either on one computer, or between a computer and another storage device (e.g. another computer, a removable disc, a flash drive or a smartphone) or between a computer and a remote computer or server.

The Job list can be exported from a Windows or Mac Client . I setup all syncs by GSTP File Servers (gstp:// IP:33333 ) within my LAN.

To run synchronization on schedule use crontab .
crontab -e

Thank you for sharing. This is a very good app.

Still, it should be noted such proceedings are not warranted or supported by Western Digital.

I relay on Siber System IT professionals. I believe ,they know what they do.

To run synchronization on schedule use crontab .

Try /DataVolume/shares/GoodSync/ . Create this folder before installation.

Before installing I created the folder /DataVolume/shares/GoodSync/ primary OS - didn’t work. Tried to create under chroot /mnt/GoodSync/ install the program failed. Please tell me more ways.

Cyril, a global error Linux. The issue is due to the fact that you have installed is not suitable for this Linux package. Installer package does not understand which version of Linux ustanolena. Some packages are installed and working, and some change the settings so that Linux no longer see the folders. There eschë one option: to copy the files from the archive GoodSync for Linux in the directory.

Install Good Sync manually ! Download Linux for ARM v5 Marvell from GS site and copy in your folder. Read the installation manual .
Installer may fail to update-rc.d if you are running Busybox-based firmware. In this case use the following command to start GsServer manually:
/etc/init.d/goodsync-server start

someone help me?

I am not sure, but it looks like the job settings problem. Check you tick “Create left/right Sync folders if they are not found”

I have a problem of install the resource directory.

Version : is available.
Try. But when I had a problem to install GS , I reinstall Debian. It was easy for me than find a problem.

It is not full ! Must be /DataVolume/shares/

I too am having this problem. I have downloaded the program, and run the installer and it’s saying I do not have enough free Space.

Same error as the above person’s issue,

Any ideas??

It is not full part! Must be /DataVolume/shares/

I also tried to install Gsync with the same error-code "not enough space"altoutgh I installed it at /DataVolumens/shares?
Can anybody help us?
