I have a Drobo with DroboShare. It’s a pretty 4 bay system that sits in a ventilated cupboard.
There’s has been a few scares in the last year with red flashing lights and a reboot loop that fixed itself, but now I am thinking I need a way of backing up the system.
I have around 900GB of data. I have spare drives and even a portable WD 1TB Drive.
What I need the Drobo to do is to backup to another device (NAS, Portable Drive, etc), just in case something happens? I don’t want any of my PCs or Laptops to be running for this (as they make to much noise)
Has anyone got a non intrusive setup for backing up the drobo, I had a crazy idea of connecting the 1TB drive to my Boxee someone how getting Boxee to pull all the files across over nigtht, every week. I’ve even was going to build a small NAS server that will cron and rsync, but cost and sourcing a system that wont over heat without a fan turned on all day might be a killer.
Any suggestion ???
