I am wondering how I backup on a Qnap TS-409 Pro (NAS-server)

I have 4 harddisks iin my server. One of the harddrives I want to copy/backup every week on another one in the qnap. How is this done? I have search everywhere but I cant find a way to do it. RAID erase everything and combine drives so it cant be that one.

Some guide or instructions would be great

What is the OS your current server is running. Depending on that it will be clearer to suggest how to back it up to the QNAP.

Have you checked if QNAP allows to create CIFS/SAMBA shares? If it does then you can map it on your XP/Vista machine and use a freeware tool to copy your data weekly.

So I have to install a "bacup" program on my computer to make this work and have my computer running? I thouhgt this should be done by just having the server running.....and with some settings make this happen.

Well Qnap in my opinion is a device that is made of custom hardware and a custom linux OS that is capable of support CIFS, NFS and other shares and at the same time supporting a RAID Configuration. This will get you access to the shares. Now how you use the shares to either backup is the question. Did you get any backup software with the QNAP's. The only possibility I see is to backup the QNAP itself to a USB storage you can connect to it or to a identical unit sitting somewhere remotely. You will definitely need some software that can handle the data backup you are interested in to make use of the available storage as backup media.

Hey Mickeys

I believe I may be able to offer some help to your question.
I have a QNAP TS509, and its is currently has a RAID Level 5 with 1TB WDGreen drives. The reason for my detailed description is to allow you to ask any further questions on redeploying.
In order to back up the 1 drive, you will need to do the following:
1. Login to the QNAP, give yourself full rights to all drives.
2. Click on Start, Run, and type \\IP (For example \\192.168.10.10)
3. Plug in a USB drive into a USB port on the QNAP
4. Go to Device Configuration of the QNAP through a browser, and Mount the external drive.
5. Choose Edit Select all, Copy and paste the data to the external drive.

I highly recommend that you remove and backup all data, and RAID the drives.

Let me know how this works out.
