nssbackup-nfs nssbackup-smb

Asked by EricDHH on 2010-07-08

Hello
hope we have more nas box users here? Most boxes are bottlenecked with higer protocols like ftp or ssh so backups took horrible times. But smb / nfs shares are basic features of such boxes, there are high troughputs available. I tested deja dup last days, it use simply the connections from nautilus favorites, all possible variations. It will be great if we can use nfs and smb for backups.

Hi Eric,

as already said, I'm working on a GIO/GVFS backend for Simple Backup. That will add these features. Currently FTP and SFTP (over SSH) already work for me. For NFS, I'll need to setup a nfs share first for testing.

HTH,
Jean-Peer

Wrote simple wrapper scripts that mount my nfs share before backup or restore-gui are started. The backups goes to a folder now, that reworked the ftp timeout and look very fast. I can live with this until the next release of nssbackup makes this official.
