Same profile --> multiple destinations?

SyncBackFree is the freeware version of SyncBack. It is *not* an evaluation version of SyncBackPro/SE.

Same profile --> multiple destinations?

Post by joaum »

Hi all,

I have a couple of external disks where I keep backups of my internal HD, weekly and monthly, respectively (Backup mode).

Is there a problem if I use the same profile to manually copy the files to the different external HD (as I switch them and therefore they have the same address "E:/ "? Does Syncback free have a database attached to the profile with names/times of files, or does it scans everything every time a profile is activated?

Thanks a lot,
John

I have the same setup and I just duplicate the 1st profile and give it a different name. I can just look at the profiles to see which one I ran last success & match a volume name to the profile name. I know syncbackSe & syncbackPro have a feature that does keep track of files on destinations so to be safe I use two separate profiles. Syncbackfree does scan the destination on backup profiles so I would say it is your choice.

Thanks a lot for the reply!

I think I've already done some backups for differents disks before using the same profile (I think all worked fine, but I did non check in detail the copies), but I'll create a new set of profiles, one for each drive, just to be safe.

Thanks
