How to back up your QNAP NAS to STRATO HiDrive
Verifying the protocol rights
In the HiDrive File Manager, create a folder in which the backup of your QNAP is to be stored. It will later be visible at the path /users/HiDriveUsername.
Logging into the QNAP NAS
Log into the web interface of your QNAP NAS and open the backup manager. The default address for logging into the web interface is: 169.254.100.100:8080
Accessing Real-Time Remote Replication
Under "Remote Replication", select the option "RTRR".
Creating a replication job
Create a replication order by clicking on the "Create a Replication Job” button.
The "Synchronization Job Wizard" will now be launched. In this wizard, click on Next to create a job.
Select synchronization path
Select "Synchronize" and then "Local Folder to Remote Folder":
Entering the HiDrive login details
FTP with SSL/TLS: Yes
Passive mode: EPSV
User name: User name of your HiDrive account
Password: Password for your HiDrive account
Click on "Test" to test the connection. If the test is successful, you can continue by clicking on "Next".
Selecting the folder to be backed up
Under "Local Source Folder", select the folder which is to be backed up to STRATO HiDrive. Under "External Target Folder", select the folder in which the backup is to be created.
Here, you can select the folder which you previously created in the "Creating Folders” section.
Configuring replication frequency
Now you can configure the replication frequency. The settings in our example configuration would initiate a replication on the hour. Naturally, rules and filters can also be configured if necessary.
Assigning a name for the replication job
Now assign a descriptive name and end the wizard by clicking on "Next".
Launching the synchronization job
The job has now been configured. You can start it directly by clicking on the "Play" symbol.
You can view the current status of the job at any time under "Show Log". This is where you will be shown the status of an ongoing job or the log entries of past jobs. This is also where you can check if all jobs ran correctly.
