i have a complete and verified backup of all my shares on USB using the WD App USB Backup (on the EX2 Ultra).
i am prepared to do a drive swap on the NAS, before doing so i wanted to know:
would using the App’s “Recover” feature work well for restoring the contents of all the shares i backed up onto the new drives ? the drives are new unused, so when i put them in i will create a new RAID and the only shares i think that will generate are Public.
would rsync be a better choice instead of doing it via the App ? i think rsync provides checksumming during the copy process, i am not sure what file copy method is used by the USB Backup app and do not know if it checksums the files it copies.
