Backup
« on: August 15, 2019, 09:07:57 PM »
Hi Guys,

first of all HFS is awesome!
I am currently looking for an option to secure all the data which is beeing uploded to my HFS System. I was searching for a while in the forum and didnt really find a way to do it.
Of course I have all the data on a Hard disk on my Computer, but for some reasons I need to secure it in case of a fire, robbery or anything like this. What I want, is a second Computer, which synchronizes itself automatically with my HFS System, so in case anything happens to the computer where my HFS system runs on, I have all that data on a second Computer.

And it is very important, that this synchronization happens automatically and regularly.
Is there anyone who has an idea how to do this?

Thank you very much for every advice!

Hfs set to save to ini file.

Hfs menu >save option >save to file

Put hfs In A folder share
Rmc(right mius click) folder directly > properties > sharing
Setup file share access

On other/backup pc, map network drive the hfs folder:

https://freefilesync.org/

Use a file copy program, a cmd script or other Means to copy files from the Network location to you new pc for backup.

(I've done this with multiple file share folder maps for a company wide backup and have found filesync to be pretty awesome with schedule task option location and Network for a quick automated run every etc to copy what it can from a location. Hfs.exe might not be able to be copy (since it is running and In use) hence you save hfs setting to ini file that can be copy.)

you can use some external software as Synchronize It software, create a repetitive windows task with command line

it is possible to use the time event of hfs to launch this type of task using a command line

Would something like this run flawlessly when set up, Mars? Would I be able to just set it up and leave it?

there is so much action direction that you would need more details of what you want to put in place with some example
