I’d like to periodically copy files from one Samba share (on USB disc 1) to another share (on USB disc 2). I’m not sure about the best way of setting this up, and whether installing additional software on the FreedomBox might interfere with its internal processes. I need some advice, please.
Can I just install
rsync and set up a
crontab job to do what I want? The usecase is copying media files weekly from one share to another (disc 1 to disc 2) to protect against hardware failure on disc 1. These are just plain portable USB drives, not RAID or anything fancy.
I’m running FreedomBox 20.12.1 on a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, running Debian Buster.
crontab? Will this work or is there a better way?
