I’m trying to set up a “backup-system” for my personal files on MyCloud (to a local drive in my windows system) as secure against human errors as possible. Ideally this should be a backup (1:1 copy of the files) with auto-update and “file history” (of changed and deleted files). What I found out:
Smartware (pro) includes backup with auto-update and “file history”, but doesn’t allow to backup from MyCloud to any local harddrive.
Safepoints are backups (of my cloud files) with auto-update function but no “file history”. There is no possibility to restore any changed or deleted files. The only way is to save manually complete safepoints without auto-update resulting in a huge storage demand and no easy way to compare
Windows 8.1 file history doesn’t save 1:1 copies and doesn’t work with not indexed network drives (there is a workaround with “links” to temporary folders and libraries) and won’t save to local drives (there ist a workaround using a shared folder and local network adress 127.0.0.1)
The combination of Safepoint and Windows 8.1 file history results in a (unnecessary) duplicaton of the first complete backup and an unnecessary storage demand.
Has anyone found a way to configure “smartware” to backup from Mycloud to a local harddrive or to “activate” file history within safepoints?
I would prefer using smartware or safepoints since both create real 1:1 copies, rather than windows 8.1 backup wich creates compressed files with “indecipherable” file names.
Thank You for any help.
