I haven’t been on in months because I gave up on trying to get the WD backups to work.
Heres my setup:
MCM set up in JBOD mode (two 4TB drives)
WD MyBook attached to MCM via USB (4TB)
WD MyCloud sitting in a box collecting dust (4TB)
The MCM is my main drive that I use primarily for storing media files. The WD MyBook is used as a ‘backup’ that I manage by hand copying and deleting files as needed.
In an ideal world I could run rsync on the MCM and it would keep the USB attached MB synced as an exact copy of all the shares on volume_1. Another option would be to use the MC as a synced backup over my LAN. My router and switches are very stable and I rarely have to reboot.
Is there a reliable way to run rsync on the MCM that will sync to either an attached USB or another NAS?
Is there a reliable to have the MC run rsync that will keep it synced with the MCM?
I don’t want to use the GUI backup on the MCM because it won’t remove files that I’ve deleted it only adds new files. I would then be stuck manually deleting files by hand. Unless WD has had a major improvement I doubt the MC backup now works. I’m open to any ideas or solutions that others have gotten to work.
