Guide: Synology Backup to USB with task and notify


Recommended Posts



as you know, on synology not exist a good method to do a simple backup (mirroring, rsync) to a external USB:

- usbcopy permit only one job

-hyper backup it's to complicated to do a simple job (directory of bkp is inside another directory, or if you allready have bkp directory  you have to re-doit job  again from begining)


So, i made a simple script in job task scheduler to do a backup of internal directory to a external usb and to have a notification when job is done:

rsync -au --delete /volume1/dir/ /volumeUSB2/usbshare/dir-bkp/
/usr/syno/bin/synodsmnotify @administrators "Rsync Task" "Dir-bkp done !!!"

change dir with your directory


I hope it's help.
