Backup multiple shared folders from LS520 to USB disk
« on: October 29, 2017, 12:08:50 pm »
I'm having trouble backing up my LS520 (2x 2Tb, sw version 4.13) to USB-disk. I can define one backup-job from one shared directory to the USB-disk. When I try to save a second one (different job-name, different shared directory as source, same target: "/device/homes/USB/usbdisk1/", I do get the message "Differential and incremental backups could not be configured simultaneously for the same folders".

The message appears regardless the backup-mode: full, diff, incr.

The backup-software should create a directory on the USB disk when backing up in diff and incr mode with the same name as the job-name: with my device, it doesn't (therefore the error message makes kind of sense  ::) ).

I've tried the USB-disk in NTFS, Ext3 and Ext4: all the same.

Would appreciate your ideas!

Chris.

Create a separate folder for each backup manually.

Thank you very much for your suggestion, I really do appreciate it!

I've tried it, but I was not succesful: the LS520 deleted all my manually created folders before backing up, it simply clears the whole USB disk before backing up... :-(

I've tried it with the USB disk in NTFS and Ext4 formats.

Hi,

We're experiencing the same issue on an LS520 too. We can't create multiple jobs as you get the above error, no matter what backup method you choose. Creating sub-folders on the USB drive is of no use as they're not visible in the source browser.

Basically this means we can only backup one share which is not a viable option.
