Share settings of a backup to multiple destinations

Post by MichaelVidelgauz »

Searching forum for "multiple destinations" I have found topic Is your backup really a backup?

So I see I am not alone to backup same sources to multiple destinations (not a big surprise). But now I am interested how those 3 backup profiles "Daily Backup - 2nd Drive", "Daily Backup - USB", and "Daily Backup - Network" of user EricB2 are configured. Specifically, how path filters of 3 profiles are being kept in sync (and I suppose that since they all backup the same sources all 3 filter sets should be the same). I am not that accurate as EricB2 is, I am making backups to 2 destinations only. Still, it is a pain for me to mirror changes I do in one profile to another profile. (Yes, I know I can fully configure and test one profile and then clone it and change only destination path, but even after I have it done I need to review/change original configuration quite often).

So here are my 2 questions/ideas:
1. Is there a way to share filters and/or other settings between two (or more) profiles?
2. Is it possible to develop a possibility to have multiple target (right) paths in a single backup profile?

Thank you!

Hi,

1. SyncBack has shared settings on many of the settings pages, but you can't share filters.

2. Short answer is no. You can set the destination path via the command line (or by using variables) but you cannot have multiple destinations.
