I would like to place one in a remote location and one where I am. The local one would be attached to a drive with around 4TB of data.
On the remote machine I would look into how to setup an SFTP server. On the local machine I would install WinSCP and create an automated routine to backup the 4TB of data.
Both are running Windows 7.
As my knowledge in the area is limited I am looking for guidance rather than exact steps I need to take.
I would then look into the details and do my own research.
1. If the remote machine (SFTP Server) IP address changes occasionally, how would the local machine (IP address changes too) deal with reconnects and security keys? Workarounds?
2. What would be the highest level of security available for such a setup and how to achieve it? (rough info is more than enough)
3. How would WinSCP deal with such amount of data, meaning enormous number of files/directories and huge files as well? (Initial synchronization would not be done over the Internet)
4. Is there a support for Block-Level Sync or a similar feature? I read GoodSync Connect has this feature, although I would like to use open source software of which I can dig into the security implementation if I wish to.
