Before I start doing the backups, I wanted to make sure I don’t run into a duplication issue.
My plan is to use rsync to copy /data1 to /data2 once a week.
/data1 is where the owncloud data folders are kept. If rsync copies them, I’m not sure if it changes anything on the original file (date, archive bit, etc) that would cause owncloud to think the file has changed and re-sync to the clients.
As far as I can tell, rsync does nothing but read the original file, so it should be okay, but I’m hoping that someone with better working knowledge can confirm.
my set up: /data1 is a RAID0 of 2 drives (sata3 6Gb/sec). /data2 is a RAID5 of 8 drives (sata2 3Gb/sec)
