OS X Server 10.6 backup to NAS Box

On our Mac Mini Server (OS 10.6) we have 2x external USB Drives. One is ued primarily for TimeShift Images and the other holds users documents. (2TB & 1TB respectively).

I've left it a bit long but should actually automate / rsync the 1TB drive onto our NAS.

The NAS is the D-Link DNS-323.

Any ideas on a good way to do this?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Above are a few links, rSync GUI for OSX, I have used Grsync and arsync on OSX, to rsync local data to a nas box.

Hope that helps

You could also consider the built-in Time Machine app as low cost and free option.

Time Machine would be good but since it's going to a EXT3 based box it won't work :|
I've tried arsync and it works well however just have to automate it eventually.

Does your NAS support broadcasting as a Time machine box?  If not then the next time you are upgrading that NAS look at this product or similar that supports broadcasting as a TM https://iomega-na-en.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/22139
