You can initiate an automated copy of data from a USB-connected device.
To begin the copy:
During a copy, Lyve Drive Shuttle creates folders using the following naming convention:
These folders are stored in the Backups folder on the root of the Lyve Drive Shuttle.
|HH||Hour (24-hour clock)|
|UUID||Universally unique identifier designating the device from which the files were copied|
Take for example the following directory:
Lyve Drive Shuttle would have created this directory on October 1, 2020, at 1:06pm. The source of the content was a device with a UUID of XFGT6G. This was the first upload of content from this device on this day.
When viewing your copied files in Lyve Drive Shuttle > Backups, folder names created during incremental copies are appended with _update. Folder names from copies that were interrupted are appended with _incomplete.
|Backup type||Sample folder name|
When a new storage device is detected, Lyve Drive Shuttle will copy all files from the source. If the same drive is connected again at a later date, Lyve Drive Shuttle will perform either a full or incremental copy, depending on your copy settings.
|Full||All files on the storage device are copied, regardless of whether some or even all files on the device were copied previously.|
|Incremental||Only new files on a previously ingested storage devices are copied to Lyve Drive Shuttle. Incremental copies can save storage space and copying time.|
To enable incremental copies:
Verification checks the integrity of files for all copies. Enabling this option doubles the time to copy.
