I have a WD Personal NAS to store my local security camera footage ( about 20gb)
I also have 1TB Amazon Cloud Drive.
I also have a ultra netbook running 24 hr for varies thing.
What is the easiest way to periodically (e.g. 15 ~ 30 min. ) backup my NAS to a folder I created under Amazon cloud drive?
odrive is geared for full, bi-directional sync, so it sometimes isn’t the best solution for traditional backup, depending on your use cases. There are definitely a lot of folks that use odrive this way, though.
In this case you would probably want to use the “sync to odrive” feature and point the local side to your mounted NAS volume and the remote side to your Amazon Drive folder. https://docs.odrive.com/docs/manage-sync#section-syncing-external-storage
Edit: We have a traditional backup feature now: https://docs.odrive.com/docs/protection
Can you walk me through the steps on odrive 1 for this set up.
I have already linked FTP and amazon drive.
You won’t be able to sync one link to another in odrive1, so you wouldn’t want to use the FTP link for this. Instead you would be using “sync to odrive” to sync the mounted network drive of your NAS to Amazon.
Take a look at this portion of our documentation for more information: https://docs.odrive.com/docs/manage-sync#section-syncing-external-storage
