Backup up home server to external USB drive, is this automatic? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just added an external USB drive and configured it for being a backup drive.  I ran a manually backup on my Home Server and specifed the shares I wanted to be backed up to the external drive.

    Do I have to run this backup every time I want those files copied to the external drive?  I would like for it to be done automatically so if I ever have to run from the house I can just grab the drive and be assured that the latest files (within 24 hours) are on there.

    Thanks.

  • Yes, it's a manual process for now.

    You can use another app such as RoboCopy or SyncToy and schedule it, but you can't schedule the backup tool that comes with Power Pack 1.
