Block Storage Volume or Spaces Backup Sync.

Can we sync “Block Storage Volume or Spaces” backup 1 Account to another Account.
As Current DO is not providing Advanced User role management based on the Droplet specific. So if anyone is destroyed Spaces or Volume, then all the data will loss.

If we can sync 1 account “Block Storage Volume or Spaces” Data 1 Account to another account, then it would better.
Because we can give 1 Account access another Members and we will not worry if that Members had doing any wrong things.
Because we already had a Backup on another Account.

Hi there,

Yes, this is doable. What you could do is have a completely separate account and deploy a small server with a Block storage attached, then you could use the rsync command to transfer all of the files from the main server to that small backup server on the specific separate account.

For more information on how to use the rsync command, you can take a look at this tutorial here:

How to Transfer Files from One Linux Server To Another Using rsync

You can also set that up to run as a cron job so that the files are transferred on regular basis automatically:

You could do the same with Spaces with a tool like s3cmd:

Hope that this helps!
Best,
Bobby
