Hi,

I wanted to backup my Linux system to my Linkstation (LS-CHLv2) in a way that kept ownership details (UIDs). NFS would be my first choice; I've found that I can do a reasonable imitation using sshfs over ssh - with thanks to the many posters on this board and various other websites. I use ssh keypair authentication rather than password authentication.

I wrote some notes for myself that I've tidied up for general consumption. I've also included details of how to do 'snapshot' style backups, so that duplicate files in separate backups only exist once on the disk to save space.

The instructions are probably fairly generic, but I don't have any other varieties of Linkstation to check this with. If it works for you please let me know here or via http://www.acrconsulting.co.uk/contact.html.

Anyway, here's the document,
http://free.acrconsulting.co.uk/docs/Bu ... %20SSH.pdf

Feedback etc welcome.

"Linux all the way", then rsync is a friend, read the man and use google and you will be well off.
You may need to have ssh running on you LS, and install optware and install the latest SSH and rsync that way.

I've made a few corrections to the guide, in case you're using it: The link will now give you the updated version.
