  • Which file backup software do you use?
    To sync files between hosts/network locations, you can use rsync. It allows synchronizing files and folders, building a 1:1 data structure. If you need bidirectional file sync, you can use lsyncd.
  • Link two directories without using symlinks or fstab
  • Internal Backup between array
    Actually, you can use lsyncd to configure automatic bidirectional file synchronization from RAID to a single drive and vice versa. Alternatively, you can use FreeFileSync, Syncthing, rsync/robocopy, or rclone that also allows you to schedule the synchronization job.
  • RAID 1/0 a Drive + Samba share
    I can recall lsyncd allows to setup bidirectional replication of data. It isn't RAID but file-level replication that can do the trick.
  • rsync on file change | 2021-03-11
    Another vote for lsyncd. You can use it for bidirectional synchronization.

    Great! I remembered another utility I'd found in the past called lsyncd: I'm not sure I'd recommend using it (unmaintained and much less lean than your current solution), but looking at that reminded me of two things I think can probably still be improved upon:
  • Solutions for slow system due to intensive hdd usage....
    Your friend in this scenario will likely be lsyncd, or some kind of other inotify based method of syncing files back to your shared storage.
