MYBook Live Duo (6TB Raid 1) direct backup to MyBook Live (3TB)


I’ve been reading through the posts looking for a way to create a DIRECT back-up from 1 network drive to another without the use of a PC to trigger this event.

Can anyone provide a suggestion as to how I can achieve this?

What I think I can do (but don’t know which program to use) is run a process on the Duo that schedules to run on Sunday nights that will copy all files, that do not have the archive bit set, to the MBL.

I realize that there is a little more to this but this is a good startiong point.

Can I achieve this using rsync?

Thank you in advance for your help!

That’s what Safepoints are for.

Ok, I’ll take that as a suggestion but what about this…

I use a safepoint an a fire occurs. The safepoint now means nothing.

I have the ability to run 3 (3TB) from another building with a cable run to the router that both the MBL and the Duo are connected to. Can we start the question again?

Well, if you can do that, then the same answer applies.
