I am using a Ubuntu Box 12.4tle as a backup node to backup  NAS1 to NAS2 (source and Destination)
I am using Lucky backup which is a GUI for rsync to do this as i am a Linux novice.

Can someone tell me what i need to do to get the below working.

I need the source share on NAS1 to sync to the Source share on NAS2 (full backup), but i need any changes (incremental backup) to be put in a folder within that share "archive data" with the folder named with the day of the incremental backup.

So the 2 main shares stay the same on both NAS's but on the backup location we have a folder with incremental backups with date the backup was made, file structure (hardlinks) intact.
