Backup Seagate Personal Cloud

server-seagate

#1

I am running a 3TB Seagate Personal Cloud NAS with PLEX Server for more than a year, the server is not very powerful but is working OK for my needs. Last month i bought a second Seagate Personal Cloud unit, the new device is working and all files are synced correctly.

Plex server is running on both devices, but i can not backup the Plex library from one device to make a copy on the second (backup) unit. All video and music files are copied to the second device in the same folder structure, i only need to copy and update periodically the Plex database.

Anyone knows how to access the Plex library database to make a backup in the Seagate Personal Cloud.

I ask the Seagate support about how to access the device with SSH, by they did not help, and tell me that Plex app is from a third party and so they can not help me. I only want a way to access to the NAS root files, but Seagate support did not help with that.

Regards.

Here you have instruction how to enable SSH on 3TB Personal Cloud:
https://www.seagate.com/nasos/SDK/0.7/debug/index.html

`Warning

On some devices, the SSH service isn’t available by default and won’t appear in the service list. In order to enable the SSH service on those devices, you will need to add the appdev=1 parameter to the NAS URL in your browser. For example, if your NAS IP is 192.168.0.10, you should enter the URL http://192.168.0.10/?appdev=1

Hello, could you please explain or point me to a guide that describes how to use SSH to update the Plex database to a drive? I am in a similar situation to you wanting to copy a database to a new drive.
Thank you
