Automated Backups

Hello again,

Is there any way to have a Rockstor appliance backup automatically to an external hard drive?

Thanks in advance.

Sorry it took me a while to reply, but this is something I personally like as well. Currently, I have a script using rsync to backup certain Shares. But I think that we can support this use case in a more robust way for home users.

In fact, there is another post about this same feature: Click-to-backup functionality

I think the user detailed how it should work pretty well, but please add your thoughts to it as well.

Sorry for getting on this topic after so long. I was browsing the forum for similar topics, and happened upon the future Rockons poll. So will the backup to USB functionality be added in the future as either Rockons or as a part of Rockstor itself?
