TrueNAS can send, receive, or synchronize data with a Cloud Storage provider.

TasksCloudSyncAdd

Transfer

NameDescription
DescriptionEnter a description of the Cloud Sync Task.
DirectionPUSH sends data to cloud storage. PULL receives data from cloud storage. Changing the direction resets the Transfer Mode to COPY.
Transfer ModeSYNC: Files on the destination are changed to match those on the source. If a file does not exist on the source, it is also deleted from the destination. COPY: Files from the source are copied to the destination. If files with the same names are present on the destination, they are overwritten. MOVE: After files are copied from the source to the destination, they are deleted from the source. Files with the same names on the destination are overwritten.
Directory/FilesSelect the directories or files to be sent to the cloud for Push syncs, or the destination to be written for Pull syncs. Be cautious about the destination of Pull jobs to avoid overwriting existing files.

Advanced Options

NameDescription
Follow SymlinksFollow symlinks and copy the items to which they link.
Pre-scriptScript to execute before running sync.
Post-scriptScript to execute after running sync.
ExcludeList of files and directories to exclude from sync.Separate entries by pressing Enter. See rclone filtering for more details about the –exclude option.
Upload Chunk SizeFiles are split into chunks of this size before upload. The number of chunks that can be simultaneously transferred is set by the Transfers number. The single largest file being transferred must fit into no more than 10,000 chunks.
Remote EncryptionUse rclone crypt to manage data encryption during PUSH or PULL transfers: PUSH: Encrypt files before transfer and store the encrypted files on the remote system. Files are encrypted using the Encryption Password and Encryption Salt values. PULL: Decrypt files that are being stored on the remote system before the transfer. Transferring the encrypted files requires entering the same Encryption Password and Encryption Salt that was used to encrypt the files. Additional details about the encryption algorithm and key derivation are available in the rclone crypt File formats documentation.
TransfersNumber of simultaneous file transfers. Enter a number based on the available bandwidth and destination system performance. See rclone –transfers.
Bandwidth LimitA single bandwidth limit or bandwidth limit schedule in rclone format. Separate entries by pressing Enter. Example: 08:00,512 12:00,10MB 13:00,512 18:00,30MB 23:00,off. Units can be specified with the beginning letter: b, k (default), M, or G. See rclone –bwlimit.

Dry Run

TrueNAS connects to the Cloud Storage Provider and simulates a file transfer without sending or receiving data.
