Hi guys,

I have a NAS with 32 TB which are managed in different folders. So far I was using 5 TB external hard disks for backup. Unfortunately I reached now in one folder the size of 5 TB which makes the backup more difficult.

Of course I could split the folder on my NAS but this would destroy my whole folder structure and in addition I would always need to adjust. Instead I'm looking for a more convenient way for the backup. My first idea was to have a script which calculate the amount of sub folders and tells FreeFileSync to backup half of the folders to one external disk and the other half to another disk.

Can you tell me about the possibilities or do you maybe have another idea for my challenge?

Thank you!
