DeltaCopy: Update DLLs To Solve Common Issues

DeltaCopyFix-2If you’re a Network Attached Storage (NAS) owner, and make use of backup tools included in most NAS devices, you’re probably using the rsync server component to do differential backups. One Windows, one of the more useful tools to synchronize files this way is using a free tool called DeltaCopy. I’ve previously gone over the process of setting up DeltaCopy to connect to an rsync server and backup. DeltaCopy has a number of issues that revolve around it’s use of Cgywin (problems with Windows hard links, file name references, long file names). Updating the core components used by DeltaCopy can fix some of these problems.

How To Setup A Fast, Free, File Backup To A NAS That Only Transfers Changes [rsync]

Tapes. I’ve heard many say they aren’t dead. I say, if they aren’t dead, they’re probably zombies. A technology of an era when tapes represented a cheap medium of storage. Today, the best, fastest and cheapest way of backing up involve using inexpensive hard drives. Say, a NAS (Network Attached Storage) device connected to a local area network to backup enterprise data. That’s all great, but one of the core challenges is to create incremental backups to minimize network data transfer. Even better, how about backing up only data that changes (delta) to a NAS device? Let me show you how to do that for free (well, with the exception of having to buy the NAS).

There are no more results.
