    • Backup of OVN to other local NAS

      There is a lot information to find on the web about rsync. And while it has some great possibilities for back up purposes I am afraid it will be hard to use it on your Lenovo. To use rsync it needs to be implemented on both the source and target box. I owned one of those Lenovo's for a short time and I can't recall the implementation of rsync. Another problem is the fact that running rsync tasks are a bit of a workload for the processor, while the processor of the Lenovo is not al that powerful. And the memory is not very big as well (not as big of a problem). One of the methods to use rsync, is rsync over SSH. That makes the exchange of SSH keys needed. SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol) is implemented but I don't know of you have a fully SSH shell available on the Lenovo. Try to use Putty or a likewise tool to access your box with SSH and see what happens.

      If you use the search function on your link
      and search for 'rsync' there are 3 hits:


      When you go to 'Adding Copy Jobs' it seems that rsync is supported
