Scheduled Transfer of NextCloud Photos to External HDD

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a way to schedule automatic transfers of my NextCloud photos folder to an attached USB HDD.  The USB HDD will be attached directly to the Unraid server and my wife wants to be able to upload her photos to NextCloud from her iPhone but have them automatically sync up to the external HDD on a schedule.  Is this something that is possible?

 

Alternatively, I would also be interested in an automated task that would sync the NextCloud photos folder to the external HDD when it is plugged in if that would be doable?

You can run scheduled scripts you create via the User scripts plugin.

the Unassigned Devices plugin supports running a user supplied script when a specific drive is plugged.
