I have some small filemaker files on a virtual server (2012 R2) and I want to back them up offsite.
Does anyone have good ideas how to do this?
This is what I have tried:
I don't need to backup the whole server so I haven't paid for that service from the VPS provider - plus I want a truly offsite backup incase e.g. the VPS provider locks out my account or something similar. The files are also small so I can use a free service like dropbox, one drive, google drive.
So I tried to set up the following
1) Added an FMS schedule to make a single backup (no need for 7 offsite backups)
2) Downloaded dropbox
3) Attempted to create a script to copy the backup folder to the dropbox folder. This didn't work!! xcopy and robocopy both made an identical folder instead of copying into the dropbox folder!!! E.g. I setup the sync folder E:/Dropbox, xcopy would then create another E:/Dropbox folder... So I did what is not recommended and made filemaker backup directly into the dropbox folder and this works!
4) Then the last problem... the dropbox sync application doesn't run as a service, i.e. the administrator has to be logged in for the sync to work.
Is there a backup service that is free that will run as a service in Windows?
