Sync Multiple Drives to Different Locations?


Recommended Posts

Hello,

For many years I've being running a 1 to 1 sync. eg:

Source PC:  Drive E: >>>>> Destination PC1: Drive E:

Source PC:  Drive F: >>>>> Destination PC1: Drive F:

I'd now like to bring in a 2nd Destinaton PC but it will not have the same drive setup as the source.  eg: Source PC (and Desination PC1) drive E and F are 4Tb each.  Total of 8Tb.  The new 2nd destination PC will have a single 8tb drive to sync to.  Without partitioning it, can I sync to 2 folders on PC2 (to mimic Drive E and F) while still syncing to 2 drives on PC1?

Cheers

Sorry to hijack this thread but I have a similar issue.

I'm using OMV5 and have setup resilio to backup my movie folder from one external drive.

For example: /srv/dev-disk-by-label-Movies:/sync

That has worked fine.

Now I want to backup my music folder but its located on another external drive.

When I setup:  /srv/dev-disk-by-label-Music:/sync it said it cannot have a duplicate sync folder.

So  I changed it to: /srv/dev-disk-by-label-Music:/sync2 

But when I go to the web ui, it only seems to allow /sync - it does not recognise or see /sync2 

How do I get the second external drive onto resilio please?

I’ve made some progress but still getting errors.

Modified as follows:
/srv/dev-disk-by-label-Movies:/sync/driveA

/srv/dev-disk-by-label-Music:/sync/driveB

On Resilio webUi, I can add the /sync/driveA folders but get an error message when trying to add /sync/driveB folders.

Error message I get is ‘foldererror32795’

Any help?

Thanks Andy - I'm using OMV5 and the directory has read/write permissions (I checked that). Tried restarting but the underlying folder doesn't have the .sync folder. Is there a way to manually copy the .sync folder using windows explorer?
