FTP Backup of MyBook Live

I want to back up the files on MyBook Live to my own ftp site but am struggling with how to do it.  Can anyone help?  Thanks.

You can use the sftp command line client once you ssh to you MBL 

Better is scp or rsync if your FTP server supports it.   For example:

>scp /shares/Public/ user@myftpserver:~/Backup/Public/

as RickGTC said, first you have to enabe SSH, login and run the command.

Now the command can be either ftp/scp/rsynch.

If security is not a concern, FTP. Otherwise, stick to encrypt protocols such as scp/rsynch which run over ssh.

Great, thanks for this…
