Restore backed up files from pc/usb to Server?


Question

HI sorry another noob question

When my drives crashed I managed to back up some data from my NAS to an external USB by mapping the NAS drives to my win pc and copying over etc

I want to reverse the proces, so I have a virgin NS drive, have mapped the folders onto the pc

Is the simplest way to just copy and paste on the PC from the external USB to the mapped drives?

I normally use SYnctoy when eveything is all set up to keep things..ummm...sync'd

It is a fair chunk of data with home movies and the family photo archive (around 2TB) so I want to set it up overnight and leave it to ie

 

Thanks for the advice

you can connect the usb hdd directry to you dsm box and use the filestation or other tools (there are tools like synologys "USB Copy" in package center )

that way it not depends on your pc or network to finish the job
