Hi Guys,

this is probably just me....

I'm now using BackupPc 3 on SME 7.
It's a great program, just one thing though. On version 2 you had the option within the SME interface for Backuppc to send a backup to an external location, i.e. another server. I can't find this option in the new version though.

I have looked at the BackupPc documentation and just can't find this info!

As I said, I'm sure it's just me but what am I missing?

Thanks

Russ


Hi. I haven't implemented this function in 3.0. Some scripts are ready but I need to fix some issues before the next release. I'll post when it'll be ready.

Cheers, Daniel
C'est la fin du monde !!! :lol:

Hi. This is not SME specific, you'll find more help here: http://backuppc.wiki.sourceforge.net/

I think the best option is to use cygwin+rsyncd on the windows boxes, and to configure 4 different modules (one for each directory you want to backup)

Thanks VIP-ire for your reply and advice

Wel I seem to be able to get One of Two Things Done with the Windowz XP Boxes.

1. Backup the Whole Drive from Each Windowz PC to the BackupPC Server.

                           or

2. Backup One Folder from Each Windowz PC to the BackupPC Server.

Please I need help an Example script " rsyncd " for my Windowz PC's to Backup Four Folders from Each Machine. I have looked at the Website Mentioned and I cannot seem to Find an Example.

Thanks again  :-)
