Are you looking to use Synology NAS DS216 as your permanent backup solution? You can manually copy your catalog and images to that drive and can update the same every week. Will you be using network connection to connect this drive to your machine?
I got lr cc classic and I was wondering if I could backup my catalogue to a Synology nas ds216 at night.
Not turning of my nas not turning of my iMac, the first time it will take some time(days), but when I work on pictures today or import new ones,
they just must back up to the nas the new ones.
It is for for safety only.
is there another solution??
The mayor catalog is on my Imac. And I'm using all ready time machine.
But better safe then sorry!?
I think there is a (potentially dangerous) misunderstanding here. Lightroom only backs up its catalog file. That file is just a database, and does not contain your images. If you want to backup your images (and you should!), then you need to use a separate backup application. If the images are stored on your internal disk, then Time Machine does it already.
Ok thnx for the respons,
I want to back up everything, if Time Machine does it allready thats ok, butt I want a second backup and this could be the nas or an other drive for example I have also a rugged Lacie of 5tb to backup to! Is there another program that starts at 11pm and backup the lr catalogue. I don't want to use the backup directly to LR.
thnx for the respons
Any decent backup utility can be set to start a a fixed time.
