Do to corruption problems with Time Machine on my Drobo NAS, I have decided to have two shares housing the TM backups so that they back up in a rotation. I have already completed the initial backup to TM_A, but it takes over a day. To save time, I want to duplicate TM_A to TM_B. I want to use the Drobo to handle the copy it's self and avoid the slow down of using the wifi network to send data from the Drobo to my Mac and then back to the same Drobo.
However when I SSH into the Drobo as Admin and look inside the shares, the sparsebundle is a directory, yet not a directory I can enter. Using either CP or Midnight Commander, copying only copies the directory, but not the full sparsebundle. How do I copy the entire sparsebundle, files included, and not just the directory?
- NAS: Drobo 5N
- Computer: MBP running 10.13.5
- Backup disk 1: TM_A, 500 GB allocated
- Backup disk 2: TM_B, 500 GB allocated
- Connection type: Wi-fi
