The Backup page helps the administrator and users configure Backup and Restore Jobs of data stored on the LaCie CloudBox. A backup job can be:
The Backup page features a Backup & Restore Wizard to guide you through the setup. Types of backup for public and private access folders:
Backup: To prevent data loss due to drive failure, fire, flood, or theft, you wish to back up folders on a LaCie CloudBox in your home to a LaCie CloudBox at your parents' home. You can use the Backup page to set up a remote backup to a LaCie CloudBox that is in another location (offsite).
Restore: Someone in the household accidentally deleted an important term paper from his personal folder. Thankfully, he backed up his personal folder every night onto the Family folder on the same LaCie CloudBox. Use the Backup page to begin a Restore Job to retrieve the missing document.
Remote backups will copy data from a folder on your LaCie CloudBox to a folder on a second network attached storage, also known as NAS. A second NAS could be another LaCie CloudBox or an alternative LaCie NAS device (see LaCie Network Storage for details). The folder that you wish to back up on your LaCie CloudBox is the Source. The second NAS is the Destination hard drive that will store the backup.
|Source NAS||Destination NAS||Destination NAS Location||Destination Folder||Type of Remote Backup|
|LaCie CloudBox A at home||LaCie CloudBox B or a third-party rsync compatible NAS (see note on rsync below)||Home network||Network Backup Share (see Network Backup Share)||Home NAS-to-NAS|
|LaCie CloudBox A at home||LaCie CloudBox B or a third-party rsync compatible NAS (see note on rsync below)||Network outside of the home (e.g. a relative or friend's home)||Network Backup Share (see Network Backup Share)||Offsite NAS-to-NAS|
All Remote Backups from your LaCie CloudBox must be copied to a special share called Network Backup on the Destination NAS. Therefore, it is important to enable the Network Backup Share on the destination NAS before setting up a remote backup.
