Hi Everyone,

I am using a Buffalo LinkStation (LS-QVL), it is configured for RAID 10 and has 4 Terabytes of capacity. I am not using anywhere near the full capacity (instead I am only using about 6%!). It has occurred to me that I should make an off-site backup of the content on the LinkStation. Toward this end I would like to backup the contents of the LinkStation to an external USB hard drive.

Can anybody tell me if it is possible to backup files from this NAS to an external hard drive? If it is possible any advice on how to set this up will be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

Davo

Hi Frederickery,

Thanks for the heads up. I have backed up network files in the past using RoboCopy, and scheduled a batch file to run RoboCopy commands through the Windows Task Manager. I will take the same approach with folders on the NAS and see how I go.

Kind Regards,

Davo
