Like many initiated, I had many digital pictures and home videos floating around in many HDDs. Had a Raspberry Pi 3B+ laying around the house unused and decided to setup my own NAS.
Long story short, I installed OMV4 and have a dual HDD docking station. Started with a single WD NAS RED 4TB HDD and transferred some content. Installed Plex and it is working fine. So far, so good. Pretty straightforward setup.
Now, I decided to buy a second WD NAS RED 4TB to be an exact replica (Mirror) of the first one.
Initially I tried to setup a RAID O but found out both disks needed to be initialized (wiped/formatted). This was a no-go since I already have content on my primary drive.
I've been doing some reading about the differences between RAID and Backup. Decided to ditch RAID and use a backup solution instead. Now I'm scratching the surface with Rsync and RSnapshot. However what I've seen is you need to select and backup folder by folder.... Not exactly what I'm looking for.
Is there a user friendly (GUI) way to setup a whole disk backup?
- Select Source Disk
- Select Target Disk
- Set how frequently you want it to run automatically
- How many days you want to keep your snapshots?
- Click OK and DONE!
Without recreating the folders of the Source Disk in the Target Disk.
I have both Rsync and Rsnapshot enabled on my system.
I'm putting on hold transferring more content to my primary disk until I get the second one running as backup.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
