Those are two separate tools, for specific usage/design.Is there any significant difference between snapshot replication vs Hyperbackup?
You will get overlap for sure. Drive data is synced using Drive, then that same data is in ABB task as well (that's double right there) and then on top of that, you have SR task that also included Drive data again. Not sure what's inside that HB task but looks to me you already have too much overlap so far.My concern here is when doing the HB nightly backup, to an off-site NAS, is the data being backed up and doubled a few times. Between using synology drive, which syncs files from computer to NAS user profile. Then active backup of the entire laptop. Then SR of the shared folders on the NAS, which includes the drive folder which was already backed up with AB. So when the nightly HB which goes to a 2nd offsite NAS, is the data usage being sent offsite inflated compared to the raw data?
That combo looks fine. As long as you don't have 2 much overlaps, and you can get that with versions in both SR and HB, sounds like a solid plan.The nightly offsite HB task includes all shared folders and settings. For ABB I have a weekly backup of the laptop, it only retains that one version since the HB will hold it for at least a month. Synology Drive versions was tuned down to 10. Snapshot replications vary, but that was only because the backup of HB was nightly. Again, if I increase the HB occurrence I could tune down snapshot occurrence.
My main goal is just to have backups in case of hardware malfunction, malware, or ransomware.
Correct.So basically, they can all coincide with each other. To minimize the overlap I just have to figure out a decent retention with each.
I don't have a topic on that one but in general, it like this.Are you able to give us some insight, on your backup plan?
