I am using my MBWE as a network file share. I want to back up the MBWE to a USB disk. I know I can do this with a manual copy operation using Copy Manager, is there any way to schedule/automate copy menager?
Please I need to know that too.
If you keep the external USB drive plugged in you could have it automtically back up. I bet this will void your warranty, though. Get ipkg installed, install cron, and put an rsync script in /etc/cron.daily or whatever. The script will be something simple like
rsync -a --stats --progress /shares/Public /shares/usb1-1share1
That’ll back everything from the WD’s public folder to the USB drive on a daily basis.
