Synology Hyper Backup
Right, I've got a DS415+ at work and a DS216 at home both have and external drive hanging off them and I have been using Hyper Backup to back them both up to each other. But is is taking an age to do go, as I'm doing a bit at a time over night so it doesn't impact work. The work one has 2.3TB with 1.7TB to go and the home one has 1TB with 600gb to go.
As we shut down over Christmas until the New Year, I thought it I'd bring the work DS home with me so they are sat together on the same network - taking the broadband connection out of the equation.
Is there a quicker way to complete the backup locally. Currently they both connect to one another using a xxx.synology.me / quickconnect account.
It would be nice if I could just connect each external HD with the other DS and just do a drag and drop backup but the way in which hyper backup packages the files (ie the .hbk file) I assume this is not possible.
At work I had to factory reset the router as we were having issues with it - that changed the custom IP range from 192.168.1.x to 192.168.0.x. Since about the time of this reset Hyper Backup on my home DS can't see the work DS - it shows os off-line "the back-up destination does not exist". I can still connect to the Work DS via quickconnect in a browser without issue. Not sure if the new IP is correlation or causality.
For question 1 I know Synology will see the DS on you local network automatically with the quick connect ID. Supper handy. And do the data transfer locally. At least that has been my experience.
