Automatic Conditional File Transfers
My first post, hope my question comes across clear... thanks in advance...
I want to minimize the use of my usb external hdd by only using/transferring files to it when my internal hdd hits a predetermined free space size. The question: is there a program that will monitor 24/7 and move files/folders based on preset conditions?
Re: Automatic Conditional File Transfers
Sure. *nix is good at this. Problem is, you'll need to do some research and figure out how to write a bash script and add it as a Cron Job.
Now, I can't write this script for you (I don't know your exact configuration), but the following commands may be helpful:
df - Gives the amount of free space available. See man df
Bash's if-statement. See http://tldp.org/LDP/Bash-Beginners-G...ect_07_01.html
cp -Copy files and folders.
