Hyper Backup - LUN Backup Wizard

Hello, thank you for this forum.

The Synology help article is missing how to relink an existing backup task for LUN,
and Google is no help because I am maybe not using search terms correctly.

I can relink all existing backup tasks for all shared folders - no problem.

What I am talking about is Hyper Backup -> LUN Backup Wizard - there seems to be missing a 'relink to existing task'.

If you open Hyper Backup and click the plus sign, then choose LUN backup task, then choose the existing LUN backup folder you get an error:
"The Directory is already in use by another task. Please specify a different name and try again."

I have a feeling I am missing something obvious and do not want to recreate a 3TB LUN backup.

update in case someone follows this path -

I got into this situation because I preferred a clean install of 6.2.2-24922 in case of upgrade issues.

After you nuke from orbit Hyper Backup provides a way to reconstruct/reconnect your backup tasks and continues where you left off, no problem.

If, however, one of those backup tasks is an iSCSI LUN, I could find no way to reconnect that backup task.

So I deleted/created the 3TB LUN backup which takes 2 days w/7200rpm drives + USB 3 encryption (cuts write speed by 50%), but much quicker than contacting Synology via email.

If you have a 3-2-1 backup plan it's an acceptable risk.

There may be a way to reconnect your LUN backup task to pick up where you left off but I didn't immediately see one.
Excuse my ignorance, but how do you nuke from orbit?!
was fighting a long time with previous 6.x.x series firmware. SMB/CIFS issues, phantom S.M.A.R.T. sector issues, etc.
I wanted it gone. Obliterated.
Go to Control Panel-->Reset, click the red button, place a check-mark in the "I understand..." box and the numbers count down 5-4-3-2-1, then press the red button. Then enter launch code (your password).
It's the only way to be sure.

Thank you. So it's all done via DSM. Was thinking that you might be using some special utility to wipe out the disks externally before reinserting them back.

Nice to know.
