I am setting up a 4TB MyCloud and would like to implement an automated off-site backup system.
My strategy is to place a compressed copy of the MyCloud into a directory on a PC - and then use 1TB of OneDrive space.
I connected a 500GB HDD to MyCloud and attempted a Safepoint but it complained about there not being enough space. I can’t find anywhere in the MyCloud documentation to determine how much space I need.
My goal was to set up a schedule that copies the Safepoint from the external HDD to the OneCloud directory on the PC.
Are Safepoints a compressed backup of the drive? How much space do I need? Does my strategy sound ok or is there a better way?
