I am having an issue with the WD Sync software not performing reliably. I use the WD encryption software and then use 3 different external hard drives to do the backups. This way I can bring one with me when I am traveling and have access to all the files from my server. I then copy the changes back to the server that I made while on the road. I use 3 so I keep one locked in my office, and one offsite, and one always with my laptop.
I have been having issues with WD Sync not seeming to finish the backup on any of the 3 drives. I went and bought a new drive, and did the initial backup to the drive. I updated the WD Sync to the latest version. Now, a few days later I plug my new drive in and it just sits at copying and does not show when it’s successful.
My initial quesitons are pretty simple, is there a logs file that I can view to see when a backup is successful? I don’t always have my external drives plugged in, but I do have the Backup settings on Continious, would that be correct? I typically plug a drive in, unlock it, and then hit Enable backup and wait for it to finish. If there was a seperate logs file, it would help to diagnose why the backups don’t seem to be finishing.
Lastly, this is using USB 2.0, would it be recommended to install a USB 3.0 card in for faster backups? This seems like an easy yes.
