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.
Folders can be automatically added to each file path when copying to each destination.
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 multiple source copy then the base will be the first folder for each source. If the source is 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. As tokens or text are added or changed the path will be updated in the destination table.

Reports and Email

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.
Destination reports are normally saved at the top level or Base of the destination drive or tape. If you select End then the reports will be created inside the destination folder. You can also choose for the reports to be inside a YoYottaID_Reports folder.
Add one or more email addresses separated by commas to receive PDF reports. You will also get an email if there is a problem during the copy.


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 duplicate copies

Here the source material will be copied in parallel to DATA1 and DATA2. If you have multiple LTO drives you can create multiple tape copies. You can also make hard drive and tape copies in parallel.


Two duplicate copies

COPY #1 will use DATA1 and COPY #2 will use DATA2. When complete both drives will hold the same files


Copy a large source by spanning across multiple drives

Here the source material will be copied in parallel to DATA1 and DATA2. If you have multiple LTO drives you can create multiple tape copies. You can also make hard drive and tape copies in parallel.


A single spanned copy

COPY #1 will use DATA1 until it is full then it will use DATA2
