Adding Destinations

Setup one or more drives, tapes or volumes as copy destinations


Add a destination

Mounted drives and volumes will be shown in the Destination panel.
Click Add or Choose Other if the destination or folder required is not in the table.


Ready to copy

Now YoYottaID is ready to copy to RAID1, the source files will be put into a folder called Backups and then into a folder with the same name as the base of the source. Here the base is SRMEM_0010013.


Edit Paths

When a destination is added the paths used will be the same as the last time. To change the paths click the Edit Paths then click Edit Paths again.
Here the tokens folder, date and base will be replaced with Backups, 20150218 and SRMEM_0010013. You can choose a different date using the calendar.
The base token is replaced by the folder or drive name that was dropped in as a source. If it's a folder then you will want this to be one of your destination tokens. If it's a drive then you may not need this to be part of the path.


A different path structure

Here a new token project has been added and the folder name is Backups.

Reports

YoYottaID creates reports when a copy completes. You can select ALE for Avid, CSV for use with a spreadsheet, MD5 which has all the file checksums and PDF with full metadata. The reports can be stored on a local drive and also saved to the destination.
Add one or more email addresses to receive PDF reports.


Save paths as a Preset

As a shortcut the path structure can be saved as a preset. The preset can then be chosen form the Edit Paths menu.


Enter a preset name


Create two copies

Here the source material will be copied in parallel to RAID1 and an LTO tape YO2001.


Multiple destinations in progress

Click the green start button and the copy will begin.
