The following use case details the steps for backing up data from a server to a NAS (this example will use Synology).
1) Navigate to www.goodsync.com/download and download the appropriate GoodSync package for your NAS.
2) Log in to your NAS interface >> open “Package Center.”
3) In the Package Center, select the “Manual Install” option found at the top.
4) When prompted, navigate to the location of the downloaded GoodSync installer >> select it >> click “Open.” This will install the GoodSync for NAS package.
5) Once installed, navigate to port 11000 on your NAS (example: if logging into your NAS front interface uses 126.96.36.199:5000, enter 188.8.131.52:11000 instead).
6) GoodSync for NAS will request credentials for a GoodSync Connect account to register to this device.
If you do not currently have a GoodSync Connect account, you may create a new account here https://www.goodsync.com/gs-connect
Once the account has been registered to the NAS, it will be discoverable by other devices for replication.
7) On the server, open GoodSync and create the job that will back up to the NAS.
8) Click the left folder >> select the “My Computer” file system to specify the desired source.
9) Select the folder that will replicate to the NAS.
10) For the right folder, select the GoodSync Connect file system.
11) Specify the target destination that will receive data from the server.
12) Click the “Analyze” button to determine what will be replicated to the NAS.
13) Review the changes that will be applied >> click “Sync” to perform replication.
14) Automatic scheduling may also be set in the Auto tab of job options if desired.
