Mac - External hard drive back-ups
I have 2 exterior disk drives, WD 320GB and also a WD 1TB.
I would love to backup my WD 320GB often. Please can you educate me of an excellent application which can give these demands :
- Backup compression (not simply duplicate and also pasting the documents)
- Support for FAT - 32
- Possibly organizing
The exterior disk drives remain in a FAT - 32 layout due to the fact that they are occasionally made use of on a windows computer system.
I have actually made use of Get Backup and also it does not appear to function, as it has a mistake concerning duplicating documents with the very same name yet various expansions
How comfy are you with collaborating with command line devices?
Due to the fact that truthfully rsync and also launchd working with each other is all you require to make this take place, both preinstalled.
A write-up enters into a little bit greater than you require at http://rajeev.name/2008/09/01/automated-osx-backups-with-launchd-and-rsync/ yet primarily what you require is :
- A manuscript or rsync command that synchronizes the details, he envelops it in laptop_rsync. sh, which you would just require to change to transform which directory sites are being supported from and also to.
- A set up operating of claimed command making use of launchd, the OS X substitute for cron.
Rajeev developed a plist at/ Library/LaunchAgents/name. rajeev.laptop _ rsync.plist and also by hand inhabited it with some alternatives in his write-up, yet I would certainly advise constructing the covering manuscript and also calling it with Lingon, its actually very easy for setting up these points. Ultimately, if you offer your manuscript a.command expansion you can also click it and also run it by hand for when you require to back these up now.
