    This is what I get from the container log:

    Hi @topi


    Thanks for the recommendation. I have seen many videos from @TechnoDadLife and they are all excellent.


    Probably I wasn't clear on my previous post but Watchtower is up & running.


    The only question I have is under Status, it constantly shows "Restarting (X # of seconds)". Why?


    Shouldn't it say it say something along the lines of "2 days and X hours"?


    From the Status, seems to me the docker keeps constantly re-starting.


    No matter what change I make in configuration... From "always", to "unless stopped" , to "none".


    I'm running it as Host; name = watchtower; restart = "always".


    Any thoughts on this? Is this the way it is supposed to be?

    I didn't know backup would bring such strong emotions among team members. Appreciate all your inputs. I have learned a lot from you.


    Following recommendations from ryecoaaron: Did some fine tuning and created shared folders with path of "/" for both disks (Media and Backup).


    One of the problems I found on the GUI was when I was creating the share folder it forces you add a name. I used "root" and ended up with path "root/".


    That was fixed when I entered the path "/" first but system still forced me to add a name. I use name "root" with path "/". Then I tried to do the same for the other disk. Turns out you cannot have two shared folders with the same name - for obvious reasons.


    I quickly fixed that by using the following naming convention:


    Disk Name: Media
    Share Folder Name: Media_Drive
    Path: /


    Disk Name: Backup
    Name: Backup_Drive
    Path: /


    Then set up rsnapshot on the GUI for taking daily backups of my root and everything underneath. It is working fine. Thanks ryecoaaron!


    P.S. rsync for the whole drive works as previously stated. For the time being, I will use this rsnapshot configuration for my backups. Will look into having a second (offsite) backup location.

    Hi henfri,


    I did try rnapshot for 3 days by setting up only one of my folders.


    While it did backup the folder, I didn't like the nomenclature used by rsnapshot. It created a different folder for each day, nothing wrong with that. However, the name of the folder was Day 0, Day 1, Day 2, etc. instead of using the actual dates when the backup was created.


    This is what I saw on my backup drive:
    - Day 0
    - Day 1
    - Day 2


    This is what I would've like to see:
    - Sunday, September 2nd 2018 <Time>
    - Monday, September 3rd 2018 <Time>
    - Tuesday, September 4th 2018 <Time>


    This simple issue + the fact I had to setup each folder was a deterrent for me.


    For now, I'm backing up my Media drive once a week using rsync.


    rsync -av --delete /srv/dev-disk-by-label-Media/ /srv/dev-disk-by-label-Backup/


    I liked the simplicity of it.


    Thanks!

    After some initial tests, I've decided to go with Full Disk Mirroring/Backup with RSync, as it is explained on page 58 of the Getting Started with Openmedia Vault document.


    My source disk is: /srv/dev-disk-by-label-Media


    My backup target disk is: /srv/dev-disk-by-label-Backup.


    Note: I wiped, formatted & mounted the backup target disk. So, basically it was blank


    Using a scheduled job, under System --> Scheduled Jobs. Using the following command:


    rsync -av --delete /srv/dev-disk-by-label-Media/ /srv/dev-disk-by-label-Backup/


    I have it running every Tuesday at 1 am. I checked the File Systems this morning and both disks have the exact same size. IT WORKS!


    Question:

    • To see the actual files on my backup drive, do I need to recreate all my folders on the Source drive using SMB/CIFS?

    I would like to see them on my Windows machine, same way I see my folders on my Source drive.


    Thanks

    Thank you, everyone! I will be experimenting with your recommendations.


    Since this is not really urgent, allow me a couple of days or so to test. If I still have any questions, will let you know.


    This morning took a look at USB Backup on OMV web client - Seems it works using the same approach, shared folder by shared folder.


    Set up a test with Rsnapshot using a single Shared Folder - "Pictures". Will let you know what happens later.


    Thanks again!

    Hello everyone,


    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.


    Thanks!
