6571Re: LinkStation and Online Backups
- Nov 25, 2008Hi, Thanks!
Sorry I didnt explain it clearly enough but I was actually thinking
more along the lines of the LinkStation achieving the compressed,
encrypted, bandwidth conscious remote backup on a standalone basis.
The method you describe will require the Elephant Drive s/w running
off another computer and the LinkStation mapped to it.
An obvious solution to what I'm wanting to do is running duplicity on
the LinkStation and backing up via ftp / rsync to a web/ ftp server or
to S3. Does anyone have any experience with this? Or just using rsync
on the LinkStation?
