Simplest way to synch?

Post by yooakim » 13 Jan 2009, 02:48

I have two BUBBAs.

One Bubba (original) and the new BUBBA|TWO.

I've now moved all my stuff onto the BUBBA|TWO.

One thing I could do is sell the old BUBBA. but what I want to do is to use the old BUBBA as a mirror of the new BUBBA|TWO.

I guess that one could use Rsync?

but what I would like to know is if there is anyone who have a setup like this and could share the steps to set it up?

Any pointers are more than welcome!

Yeah, rsync sounds like the best way to do it.

Or you could simply have a script that runs and copies files, and create a cron job to do that periodically.

Even though simply copying the files does work, is probably not such a great idea since you might end up copiying files that hasn't changed. This will produce unnecessary disc-writes and use of bandwidth.
Using a tool like rsync prevents that.

Personally I use Unison( http://www.cis.upenn.edu/~bcpierce/unison/ ) to backup data on my Bubba to an USB-drive. As far as I know it work in a similar way as rsync.
