Backup files on both internal storage and external SD card

Post by Edtech »

Is it possible to Backup files on both internal storage and external SD card?

It seems like I can only get one location to sync.

This is my COVID-19 lock down project. I've been meaning to get SyncBack Touch up and running for, well, since it first came out.

Thank you for your help.

In case someone else has this question, here's the answer found elsewhere on this forum:
  1. Modify the profile > Simple settings page, remove the SyncBack Touch path (\sdcard\) and enter \storage\ in the Touch path
  2. Click on the small folder icon (browse button) next to SyncBack Touch and select the external SD card path (e.g. \storage\xxxx-xxxx\ where xxxx-xxxx is an internal volume ID set by the device) from where you want to backup files
Specifically the forum post was found here:
viewtopic.php?p=52482#p52482

One important note: I originally was confused as to the internal and external storage, which was which in the profile. I did need to make two profiles, one for each, and by doing something on the smartphone which changed either the internal or external storage and then by backing up I could see which was which. I suppose the directory structure should have given it away. So far I can't seem to make a profile to backup both at once so I just created a group profile and included each, internal and external, backup profiles.

I want to thank Swapna for the numerous times that she has helped me.

SyncBack is a well designed and powerful product. With power there will be complexity. Now I'm trying to figure out how to back up two devices.
