Using a relatively new MyCloud Ultra EX4 and wanting to backup the files stored on it. Therefore, I attached an external USB drive of equal capacity, which is formatted using the NTFS type of file system. Then I set up a backup job as described in the User Manual. The job ran fine and appears to have backed up everything. However, it now appears as though nothing else happens until another backup job is requested to be run by the administrator. Insofar as backup is something that needs to be done periodically in order to include new and possibly revised files I tried to run the backup job again after a period of time where a few more files were added. The subsequent backup fails saying that the destination folder is set to read only. I thought maybe I needed to change the backup type to something other than “Copy” even though based on the description “Copy” is what it appears that I want. The description says, “Copies files from source to destination. Duplicate files will not be overwritten.”. Based on said description I do NOT want either “Synchronize” or “Incremental”.
I wasn’t able to find any information in the User Manual about the Type option for backup jobs. Is there some other source which might elaborate on how this type of backup scheme is supposed to work?
I’d be most grateful if someone could explain what I’m doing wrong.
