I decided to upgrade the drive - twin it to the other tablo. Ran
backup-tablo from root’s terminal. I get these benign messages, at first they make you nervous, then there’s no interactive “activity”.
/usr/bin/tail: cannot open '/var/log/backup-tablo.log' for reading: No such file or directory
/bin/ls: cannot access '/media/VideoLibrary/tablo/rec': No such file or directory
/usr/bin/find: ‘/media/VideoLibrary/tablo/deleted/*’: No such file or directory
I just created directories to tablo/ so I guess it was my fault, as the script does create them.
First time I used it, no issue (may have had those warnings). This time I’m looking at your rsync example and for some reason though I wasn’t sure. Who mounts anything it /tmp - what’s that? Source to destination generally.
I ran this command:
rsync -a --info=progress2 --no-inc-recursive /media/VideoLibrary/tablo/rec /media/tablo/rec
When I found recording not found. Via a browser, I had /pvr/rec rsync’s man page tells of the importance of the trailing
/ which you do show.
looking through .bash_history I found my previous command
sudo rsync -av --info=progress2 --no-inc-recursive /media/dvr/tablo/rec /media/tablo/
Because I’m moving a directory more than files. If I add /rec to the destination, wouldn’t we have to have a file spec on each? Not going to try. I just connected to drive back to the PC and dragNdrop’d eveything where it should be. backup-tablo works great, user needs work
