Transfer file directly from USB media to DNS320
« on: June 16, 2011, 06:57:21 AM »

Seems like we can't use web file server to do a direct copy from external USB media to DNS320. Any plan to support?

Hi,

I installed fun_plug and connect using Putty or ssh from linux. Then you can copy from and to the external USB drive. I additionally installed rsync and do backups from DNS-320 to the external drive which has ext3 file system.
The USB drive can be found in /mnt/USB/HDxxxx, the DNS HD under /mnt/HD/HDyyyy.

Hope that helps ;-)

Would you please write a small guide to the Rsync and doing backups to the USB drive? Or point me to somewhere I can read about it?

This is exactly what I want to do. I have fun_plug installed, but I never learned to do things in linux.
Also, I thought the built in backup software use rsync, so why do you have to install it again?

Hi,

I'm not a Linux specialist at all and maybe my rsync usage is not the best one but for me it works ;-)

I installed fun_plug and the rsync package rsync-3.0.7-1.tgz.

My HD is mounted to /mnt/HD/HD_a2/ and USB drive to /mnt/USB/HD_c1/
I have a share "Backup" in /mnt/HD/HD_a2/ -> /mnt/HD/HD_a2/Backup which I like to backup to the USB disk.

To do that I simply run rsysnc using
rsync -vtr --del /mnt/HD/HD_a2/Backup/ /mnt/USB/HD_c1/

For more options execute "rsync --help".


Hope that helps ;-)
