Hi, I have an external usb disk formatted in ext4 which I use for my weekly backups with hyperbackup. When I check the files in disk that I'm backing up, I find a folder called usbshare1 which contains a file called DS220plus.hbk. My questions are:

  • is this folder contained in the main disk? I assume that it is because it is listed with all other directories
  • if it contains an image of the usb disk (or a journal, or whatever), which I do not need, may I delete it?
  • if this folder contains the image or the journal of the usb disk, what should I do to avoid this feature? (other than usinf FAT32 as the file system for the usb, of course)
 
The usbshare1 is not a folder, it is the operation system name for the usb disk itself. If you eject-remove the usb, it will disappear. De backup data is in the file xxx.hbk.

So this backup data is not on your main disks.

Correct. DX unit can't work without the main DS one. Any stand alone NAS (DS) would be a "smarter" choice.
