Synchronizing files on a Debian Pogoplug with a Desktop
Log in to the pogoplug as root.
At this point you can create a script file to call rsync, the program that does the actual work:
then enter the following into nano:
rsync -avz /path-to-your-pogoplug-directory/the-name-of-the-directory-to-backup/ desktop-username@1desktop-ip-address:/home/desktop-username/Documents/name-of-your-backup
Save and exit and then:
chmod +x directorysync
Running the script:
will create an archive of the directory specified on your pogoplug and put it in the Documents directory on your desktop/laptop machine.
