    • Rsync, FreeFileSync, and Syncovery

      Hello

      My son is a professional DJ and maintains a huge music and video library. I am building him a server based on OMV to store all his media in backup. He needs to sync two of his work laptops whenever new music is released/added as well as pull down songs for events that are not currently on the laptop but stored on the OMV Server. All the media is owned/purchased or used via a licensing service.

      Looking for advice on what Program/App to use for this functionality? Are these three programs what I am looking for?

      Rsync for cerebral command line personalities (professional sys admins).

      Freefilesync nice graphical easy to use yet powerful application for the rest of us.

      Personally I prefer to use a gui app compared to poring through cryptic log files & man pages.

      YMMV
    • Thanks Peter, I have decided to use FreeFile Sync. Now the question is how to add it to the OMV Server. I tried using FFS Website to install it, but it never starts. Tried starting it via CMD Line, no joy! Didn't get any answers on their Forum. Ideas or suggestions? Also, anybody please feel free to chime in.

      Are u saying that "freefilesync9.0" is possible to use under OMV3 or 4 under Omv GUI or strictly under terminal?
      There is no plugin for it. So, it must be command line or possibly its own web interface (I don't know anything about freefilesync).
      omv 4.1.7 arrakis | 64 bit | 4.16 backports kernel | omvextrasorg 4.1.7

      you do not need to add FreefileSync to OMV, you need to install FreeFileSync on your laptop PC and sync your samba share OMV folder (backup) and your local folder (main active), thats all.
