External Drive Backup Method?

2 posts in this topic Last Reply

Recommended Posts

Just ordered a 10TB Elements external USB drive. I'd like to back up some of my unRAID shares to this drive which I will keep in a super top secret location. Is there a simple / "best" / easy method for this? Any guides available? 

Rsync? Rclone? Docker container? Noob-friendly is a plus.

I use the Unassigned Devices plugin and have modified the sample photos backup script in the first post of the plugin thread so that it backs up three shares.  The script automatically does the backup when the external USB drive is plugged in.
