1 FTP to 3 or more FTP

Post by trisonic »

Hi

I have a datalogger with a built in FTP server (called A) and some other FTP destination NAS (called B, C and D).
A produce 10 heavy files every 3hrs, I want to backup it (in B,C and D) and delete it from A in order to have: only the last 3hrs file in A and free space in A.

I think the best way is to do that:
1. copy A to B
2. copy B to C
3. copy C to D
4. after checked that A have the last 3hrs in B, C and D, I want to delete the last 3hrs files in A.

B,C,D contains last 3hrs+old files.

How can I do that?

Regards
Swapna

Hi,

You have to create a housekeeping profile in SyncBack to delete files created/modified during the last 3 hours and ignore the remaining files from location A. This forum post provides details on how to do this:

Hi,

In addition, please note that in SyncBack if you have selected a non-standard resource (FTP, Cloud, SyncBack Touch) on one side (Source/Destination) then you can only select a standard resource (local drive or network path) on the other side. More details about this are explained here:

Therefore, it is not possible to sync files between 2 FTP servers using one profile. However, you can achieve this by creating 2 profiles:

1. First profile to backup files from FTP server A to a temporary folder on your local drive.
2. Create a second Profile to backup files from local drive to FTP server B.
3. Create a Group and add the above two profiles as members to the group, so that when the Group is run the two profiles will run in a sequence.

Thank you.
