FileZilla Backup local drive to another local Drive

#1 Post by usascottwright » 2022-09-16 01:20

All my data is on an external drive (e)
My backup drive (f)

I just copy everything over to drive (f) which takes a very long time.

Is there a way to do a backup from (e) to (f)? Is there a step by step video on youtube? So far the last two nights I have not found one if there is one.

I know there is syncing capabilities so if a file is changed on one directory it will update to the other directory.

I just want a faster way to backup to make a duplicate drive.

I was able to find the main directory (e) but unable to find the destination directory (f) and it also asked me about a host.

FileZilla is an FTP client. It can only transfer to and from FTP or SFTP servers.

FileZilla is NOT a file manager, it cannot transfer between local drives.


There are programs enhancing local copying like FastCopy or TeraCopy).

What does this have to do with FileZilla?

botg; re read the 3rd sentence down on my post; that might give a clue. Also this is a FileZilla chat board and my question has to do with FileZilla, I would of thought that would be apparent.

Is there a way....


Boco: Thank you for your time. I will have to find another solution to my problem.
