rsync.net Windows Backup Agent

Uma outra opção à integração do RSync com o windows, bem mais fácil do que a descrita neste artigo no post anterior, é a que se segue.

 

Installing the rsync.net Backup Agent

First, download the rsync.net Backup Agent and double-click the installation icon.

After clicking "Next" on the welcome screen, read the short License Agreement and check "I accept the agreement", then click "Next".

We recommend choosing the default destination directory for the software on the "Select Destination Location" screen. Click "Next".

We recommend choosing the default Start Menu folder, clicking "Next", then choosing the default "Additional Options" and clicking "Next" again.

Finally, on the "Ready to Install" page, click "Install". After the short installation, you may click "Finish" on the post-install screen.

Configuring a Backup

After starting the Backup Agent, you will be presented with a simple "Wizard". Click the top button labeled "Create a new backup profile".

In step 1, you will choose two locations - a source location on your own computer (the left-hand side) and the remote address of your rsync.net fileserver (the right-hand side).

Click the "Browse" button to the right of the "left-hand side" and choose a folder or directory on your computer to back up.

Click the globe icon to the right of the "right-hand side" to set up the remote destination for your backup. A small "Internet Protocol Settings" window will open.

Protocol should be set to "SSH (Encrypted)"

URL should be the address of your rsync.net storage system - this was indicated in your original welcome email. It should look something like:

sftp://usw-s001.rsync.net

or:

sftp://ch-s010.rsync.net

Port Number should be "22".

Folder is the folder on the remote side (the rsync.net side) that you would like this backup to be placed into. This should be something descriptive. A good choice is (name of machine)_(name of backup). For instance:

accounting_quickbooks

NOTE: there are no leading or trailing slashes on the "Folder".

NOTE: if you leave "Folder" blank, your backup will work fine - but the contents of your source directory will be placed in the base of your rsync.net account. If this is the only backup you will be pointing to this rsync.net account, that may be acceptable. However if you are pointing multiple backups to this rsync.net account, it will be very confusing. We strongly recommend that you enter a folder name.

User ID should be the rsync.net username that you received in your welcome email (a 4 or 5 digit number).

Password should be the rsync.net password that you received in your welcome email.

You should check BOTH "Save User ID" and "Save Password".

Now click the "OK" button.

Step 1 of 6 is now complete - click the "Next" button.

In step 2, you choose the direction of the backup. The default choice is to have only "Left to Right" checked. We recommend this setting.

Step 2 of 6 is now complete - click the "Next" button.

In step 3 you can choose from one of the various sync modes. The default settings of "Standard Copying", "Detect if Files Have Been Moved" and adjust location on the "Right-Hand Side" are recommended.

Step 3 of 6 is now complete - click the "Next" button.

In step 4 you can include or exclude specific file. We recommend leaving the defaults in place and backing up all of the files in the folder you chose in step1 .

Step 4 of 6 is now complete - click the "Next" button.

In step 5 you can schedule this profile for automated backups - IGNORE THIS SCREEN and simply click "Next". We will schedule the automated backups after the initial backup has concluded.

Step 5 of 6 is now complete - click the "Next" button.

In step 6 you can name your profile. Type in a descriptive name for the profile and then click "Save & Run".

After negotiating your login, you will be given an error message explaining that the folder you chose to store things in on the remote side does not exist. Click "Yes", indicating that the backup agent can create the folder.

You will now be shown a summary screen indicating all of the data that will be transferred during this backup. Simply click the "Start" button in the lower left corner.

The backup is now running. You will see progress meters for both the entire job and each individual file. When the backup is complete, you will see a "Copying Results" window. Simply click "OK".

Scheduling The Backup

If you have a large number of files to back up, your initial upload may take longer than 24 hours. For this reason, we do not schedule the daily, automated backups of your system until after the initial backup has completed. Subsequent backups are very quick because only the files that have been changed will be transferred to your rsync.net account.

Once your initial backup has completed successfully, use the following instructions to schedule your daily, automated backups.

If your initial backup fails for any reason, simply choose "Edit or run one of my saved profiles" from the Wizard and run your profile again (by clicking it once to highlight, then clicking the "Run Profile" button). You will again see the small "Progress Building File Lists" window, and will need to press "Start" once the "Backup Preview" window appears.

To schedule the backup, in the rsync.net Backup Agent Wizard, choose the second item "Edit or run one of my saved profiles".

Choose your saved backup profile from the list, and click the "Edit Profile" button.

All of your settings should remain the same, except for the schedule - so simply click "Next" until you arrive at step 5.

On the page for step 5, click "Schedule This Profile", and click "Run Every Day At".

Then enter a time of day that the backup job should run at. The best time to run a backup is during off-peak hours, when nobody is accessing the data being backed up. Be sure to choose the proper AM or PM signifier for the time you have chosen.

Make sure the box at the right marked "Start Scheduler" is checked and click "Next".

Now, on step 6 of the wizard, simple click "Save Only". The scheduler is now running and your backup will run at the time you have chosen each night.

Please see the entire Windows Integration Guide for details of other access methods.
