Re: Incremental backup server

Answering the HDD spin down question: In Linux you can just setup a script to run on boot that uses the hdparm command to tell the HDD to spin down after a period of time. Or you can just type it in manually if you don;t reboot regulalry, I use the following settings, which pretty much tell the disk...

Re: Incremental backup server

With regard to my last comment on escaping your work network (assuming you have no control over it - and that you won't be contravening any security policies in place ;) ), the following article may be of use:

Re: Incremental backup server

Hi, I've basically done this with two Pi's at either end acting as both NAS header to a USB HDD and also backup managers. Each one has a "local" and "remote" partition, and a script runs each night to rsync the "local" partition to the other device's "remote partition". I haven't used incremental R-...

Re: How long have you run your raspi for?

Due to an enforced business trip to the us I haven't had three chance to tinker with either of my two pi's but a quick check of Webmin whilst i sit here in the airport at Boston tells me they have been up for 30 days and they are still talking to each other! I'll be playing with them again tomorrow ...

Re: Invitation to order from RS

Not the worst service I've experienced from Parcelforce: Some year's ago (before the 2007 law change around mail order of air weapons) I ordered a rather expensive target rifle, that was sent registered and signed for (for obvious security reasons). I got home from work expecting to find a little re...

Re: Extend the partition?

I'll second the comment about the search function, but I found the answer eventually (after persevering because I knew it was there as I read it a month or so back!).

Re: Webmin Guide

I had a few problems with the tar file method above, so I'd suggest for installs based on the the debian image , downloading the .deb file and installing with dpkg: I.e. instead of the steps in your second box, do the following: wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/webadmin/webmin_1.580_all.deb s...
