How to get Retrospect to see mounted sFTP volumes as a source?

Recommended Posts

Hi There,

 

I have a bunch of sFTP volumes mounted on the OSX desktop.

 

How do I get Retrospect to see them as a source to be backed up? I can copy data from these volumes in the Finder so everything is working on the OSX side.

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

 

Cheers

 

Ben

I don't think you can do that on Retrospect 9. You have to mount the network volume using AFP or SMB from the Retrospect server GUI.

 

Which version are you running?

Thanks for that, we're using Retrospect 10.2.0 (201). I guess I thought that if OSX was handling the mounting, it's just another volume?

 

Anyway, backing up websites is kind of a pain, it would be nice if Retrospect could use SFTP or SSH - having a backup of company assets in the normal backup (in addition to online backups) would be really useful.

I have never tried Linux, so you are on your own here. :)

 

Here is a list of Linux versions that the client supports:
