rsync is a classic backup software. This is a more up to date version than the official DroboApp, optimized for the DroboFS. It has no additional dependencies.
Make sure you have a cross-compiling virtual machine properly setup.
export DEST=/mnt/DroboFS/Shares/DroboApps/rsync cd ~/code wget http://rsync.samba.org/ftp/rsync/src/rsync-3.0.9.tar.gz tar zxf rsync-3.0.9.tar.gz cd rsync-3.0.9/ CFLAGS="$CFLAGS -O3" rsync_cv_HAVE_SECURE_MKSTEMP=yes ./configure --host=arm-none-linux-gnueabi --prefix=$DEST --with-rsyncd-conf=$DEST/etc/rsyncd.conf --with-nobody-group=nobody make clean && make && make install $STRIP $DEST/bin/*

Download the TGZ file below and place it in you DroboApps share. If you do not have SSH access, reboot your Drobo. Otherwise, SSH in and type:
This package does not change the DroboFS configuration in any way. It ships with a very permissive default configuration (it exposes all the shares in read-write mode), which is only used if there is no configuration file already in place. Upgrading should be harmless, since the default configuration is only used if there is none available. In any case, it is strongly recommended to (1) make sure all clients have disconnected, and (2) backup the "etc" folder.
