    Excellent point. Thanks.

    Thanks, that's helpful. I'll take another look at FreeFileSync.

    Wow, that's thorough. Perhaps it's a bit overkill for my needs. It seems designed for a professional while I'm just a hobbyist. As far as cloud backup my upload speeds are pretty slow so that might ...
  • Simple and clean. This looks good. Thanks!
  • Right. I'll need a docking station as I'm out of USB3 ports. I wanted to avoid more gadgets but it doesn't look possible. Thanks.
  • Yup, I'll do something today. Thanks.
  • Thanks, this looks to be very capable and is probably one I'll go with. Cheers!

    That's a very clear and excellent reply. You've answered all my questions. I think I'll do as you do with an additional drive here and a cloud backup. Many thanks!
  • Replied in Network/Cloud
    Right. I just took another look at it and it might to the job. Many thanks!

    Yeah that doesn't sound too difficult. I'd want the four or five folders on the D: drive backed up to whatever the new dive will be called. I just Googled Robocopy and there's a lot of help out ...
  • Right. I want to backup a separate external SDD drive with just photos. At this point I don't want to back up my laptop. Maybe at some point but not now.
  • No USB2 uh? I guess that means I'll need to buy a USB hub as I'm out of USB3 ports on my laptop. This whole thing is really down the rabbit hole. The permutations are a bit overwhelming. After all ...

    Very good points. Thanks. All I really want, right now, is to backup Drive D: where my photos are to whatever the new HDD is called. Not certain files just the whole drive.
  • The whole Robocopy thing has me confused and wondering how I'd get it to turn on in the middle of the night after I've shut my laptop down. Maybe set it up to copy manually somehow?
  • Replied in Network/Cloud
    I'll have to study Robocopy but as it looks, right now, it's above my pay grade but I'll look a bit deeper. The NAS looks interesting but I already have a NUC and Nvidia Shield working really well. ...

    No there you go. That might work. I'll check it out. Many thanks.

    Yeah, cloud backup is the way to go but my bandwidth here in rural England at best is 7 Mbps up so maybe not practical for cloud storage. I might prefer to backup locally when I think about it. If ...
  • Thanks but I need to start out with something a bit less. Maybe one backup somewhere, not sure where and I don't want to spend a ton of money right now. Down the road? I'll reconsider. Thanks though.
  • Good advice. Like you, it's not my livelihood so if lost everything I'd survive. Something simple I could do irregularly to keep most of my stuff would be fine with me. Thanks!
  • Wow, I didn't realize it was proprietary. No, I don't want that. How about bandwidth? Does that come into play if I'm limited in upload speeds and I want cloud storage? Good information. Thanks!
