Is backup traffic thru SyncBackTouch routed thru SyncBackPro if set to back up to Backblaze?

Post by natsut »

I have been using SyncBackPro for a server backup for several years. But recently Crashplan pulled their support and we've had to move to Duplicati + Backblaze for our end user backups.

I was doing server maintenance & I really like the SyncBackPro + SyncBackTouch interface as I can control file selections / job run times all from a central server. What I need to know though is if all customers (we have about 50) would be routing all backup traffic thru my internet connection. Or if it would be streamed directly from remote device to Backblaze with SyncBackPro really being just more of a management tool.

Hi,

Please note that in SyncBackPro if you have selected a non-standard resource (FTP, Cloud, SyncBack Touch, MTP, Compression, Encryption etc.,) on one side (Source/Destination) then you can only select standard resources (local drive or network path) on the other side.

You can refer to this KB article for more details:

Therefore, if your Source is SyncBack Touch, then you cannot select cloud on the other side (that means it's not possible to directly copy files from SyncBack Touch to BackBlaze).

However, a possible workaround for this issue is to create 2 profiles in SyncBackPro:

1. Create a Profile to copy files from SyncBack Touch to a temporary folder on the local drive.
2. Create a second Profile to copy files from temporary folder to BackBlaze.
3. Create a Group and add the above two profiles as member profiles to the group, so that when the Group is run the profiles will run in a sequence.

Thanks,
Kostas
