Encrypted backup to unassigned drive

Recommended Posts

So I have gotten my hand on a 3TB surveillance drive (free) and it seem to be in OK shape.

So I got the idea of backing up the most important info on it (photos documents and so on) (not close to 3TB, more like 500gb) in encrypted form and then storing it in another location and then every X months take it home to update it and then back to storage.  As its another location I would prefer the data to be encrypted.

Is there any way I can set up so I plug it in, then press a button in unRAID, then the backup/backup update automatically happens (selectable shares) and then I can take it out and put it back? If so, how?

Im using the appdata backup plug in to make a backup of my appdata and flash drive to the array an hour after the mover does its thing. I have an external hdd plugged in and mounted. What is the best way to setup auto sync so those files also get copied to the external hdd. I know I can use dolphin to manually do it. I tried syncthing and was very disappointed in the performance.

Install the Unassigned Devices plugin and set up a script to run when the drive is hot plugged.
