I'm new to Linux so apologize in advance for the basic question. I have two drives installed in this machine. It is essentially poor man's RAID - the second drive is a copy of the first. There is a very small app and database that is a folder called /home/xxx. I want to copy the contents of this folder from the first drive to the second drive on a schedule say once an hour.
In Windows, I would use something like SyncToy to do this and it would be very easy to setup. I'm assuming I can do this easily in Ubuntu as well.
This machine recently failed and having the backup disk really saved our butts. However, I didn't set up the backup. I think it just used the built-in backup software but I have no idea how to tell it to copy to a different drive.
