I setup MCM as jbod with 1 share on each drive. I ran an internal backup from share1 to share2 using the copy option. Took about 13 hours to do 1.5TB.
I then deleted 1 file from share1 and reran the job. The deleted file was not removed from share2.
I added a file to share1 and reran the job. The new file was added to share2.
I want share2 (drive2) to be a duplicate of share1 (drive1). I didn’t choose incremental because I don’t want to be dependent on WD software to restore my data. The manual doesn’t explain the difference between copy and incremental but I thought it was:
copy: the backup would be an exact copy of drive1
incremental: a complete copy is made then each subsequent job creates just the changes.
A restore from incremental could involve numerous restores as it has to recreate all of the changes from the initial starting point.
Do I have this wrong? How can I get a backup that will recognize a file was deleted?
