Differential/Incremental to a different destination?

Post by decioy »

I understand that I can save differential/incremental backups to a different folder. But would it be possible to save them to a different destional?

I would make full backups locally and physically move them to another location (since they are are several terabytes in size), but I would make daily incremental backups to the cloud since they would be much smaller.

Would it be possible with syncback? Maybe not through the options, but then uploading to the cloud the differential folders? Any ideas?

Maybe an option to write the full backup to NULL (Full backups are already begin done through another profile) so I would only upload to the cloud the differentials?

Sorry but this is not possible, as Full and diff/inc backups has to be in the same relative path.

Hi, to add on further to my previous post, when I wrote "has to be in the same relative path", I was referring to the fact that you cannot set the Full folder path to local disk, while setting the Diff/Incr folder paths on an FTP, Cloud or another non-local disk resource (or vice versa).

It's still possible to set the paths of Full and Diff/Incr to different destination paths as long as the resource type is the same for all Destination folders. Meaning to say, it's possible to set Full to Disk X and diff/incr folder/s to Disk Y (or different UNC paths), but it's not possible to set them to an entirely different non-standard resource (FTP, cloud, etc).

Tks Conrad,

That means I could actually make it work, if I send the full backups to my local backup drive and send the diff/incr to a different drive/folder that is synced to the cloud using a sync app like onedrive/dropbox, etc.

I wouldn't be ideal, but it might work, right?
