    Incremental backup from one external drive to another?


    I'm using an external SSD connected to my router as a central storage device for all my files. I'd like to make regular backups to another external drive (not an SSD) to keep my data safe. I've tried connecting both drives to my PC and doing a complete copy but this takes ages so I'm wondering whether there's a backup programme/solution that will do this as an incremental backup ? (Preferably free). Any help much appreciated.

    :)
     

  2. Incremental Backup Procedure

    I have a Seagate STDR4000602 as an external drive for storing backup files but do not know how to schedule my Windows 10 to incremental backup files on a nightly basis.

    Incremental backup from one external drive to another?

    Hard Drive / External Drive + Backups Configuration?

    I run 2 500GB drives in RAID-0. (Seagate 7200.12 drives)

    This is very good advice. I have lost my array once. *Mad Incremental backup from one external drive to another? :mad: I backup weekly to an external, and also copy any important files (work data, game saves, pics, etc.) to my 500GB "personal" drive. So basically, I have an image of my Array saved to the external, and a copy of "My Documents" backed up to the internal 500GB.

    Moral of the story: Definately backup often, whether running a RAID array or not. *Toast :toast:
