Backing up my iMac Pro (10.15.3, 1TB) to my Synology (DS918+, 16TB, 8GB, 2GB cache, DSM 6.2.2-24922 Update 5) is problematic. They have a wired ethernet connection.
TimeMachine frequently failed (the exact errors are lost to the mists of time), so I started using CarbonCopyCloner to back up to a folder. This presented problems, so I started backing up to a disk image. When I begin the Clone, it works for from 30mins to 9hrs
compacting the destination disk image file, then says:
macOS failed to mount the destination volume because its filesystem is damaged and cannot be repaired
I’m contemplating trying ChronoSync, which I also own.
Interestingly, my MacBook Pro continues to do TimeMachine backups over WiFi without any problems.
- What do you all use to back up to your NAS?
- How reliable is it?
