How to backup traveling USB Drives
Posted on 2014-04-23
I have a user who is a photographer. When he travels he brings along usb drives that he loads up with photos.
When he returns to the office, he plugs in the USB drives and works on the photos while they are still on the USB drive..
I am looking for a way to automatically backup the USB drives to an NAS unit once they are plugged in.
The drives are 2T in size... so time for this to happen becomes an issue. I am thinking that a sync program might be more efficient as he rarely removes the data on the USB drive... just keeps adding new stuff until it is full... then moves on to a new USB drive.
Appreciate any suggestions for backup... or for methodology on his behalf to accommodate this.
