Do Rsync + Rsnapshot have to consume double space on same disk?

    • OMV 2.x
    • Do Rsync + Rsnapshot have to consume double space on same disk?

      Hope a expert on Rsnapshot can help me here. (The internet could not)
      I use DeltaCopy client on pc to transfer data to a shared folder 'Daily-backup' in OMV.
      Enabled Rsnapshot and use 'Daily-backup' as source, and create a new share 'Rsnapshot' as destination.
      Now the data is doubled up on my disk.
      It seems like Rsync is doing it's thing in 'Daily-backup', and Rsnapshot is doing it's thing in Rsnapshot'.
      is this correct behaviour? Or is there a more efficient way to do this.

      I have only Rsync and Rsnapshot service enabled on the box, as I dont want any cryptovirus messing with my backup.
      system: OMV 2.214

      Thank you very much :) .
    • From what you say I understand the following:
      1. You are using rsync service to copy files to OMV into Daily-backups and then
      2. you are using rsnapshot to copy from Daily-backups to rsnapshot (possibly keeping hard linked history)
      So you have 2 copies of your files one in Daily-backup and a history with hard links in rsnapshot.

      Is this what you wanted? Don`t know
