Best practice to mirror/sync two hdd?

Post by chrbar »

Hi,

I've two hdd 4TB (each), and I'd like to set SyncBackPro in way the second hdd is a first hdd's backup (like two hdd in RAID1 but with the possibility to access to each hdd, and have files versioning).

Because I want that HDD2 is a copy of HDD1, I've set SyncBackPro in Mirror mode (from source HDD1 to destination HDD2).
That ran correctly the first time, but after every new miroir process take a lot of time (many hours)!
I think the problem is there is a large amount of files (82 630 files, 3 166 folders), and SyncBackPro check file by file to know which action needed.

Could you tell me if there are better settings in SyncBackPro to discrease running time?

Instead of Mirror mode, can I set it in Sync mode "live", so that SyncBackPro will sync modified folders/files only?

Thanks,
Chris

Hi,

Can you please export (select the profile from SyncBackPro main-window > right click > select Export Profile from the pop-up menu) and send your profile configuration to [email protected] to verify your settings?

Thank you.
