Rsync job to folder outside home directory

Scenario: several remote servers running rsync jobs to a single Windows server setup with the copssh and rsync software downloaded from backup assist website.

Is it possible to set backup jobs from the various remotes to their own directories outside the home directory structure setup by the copssh software? Ideally, would like to send each remote's jobs to their own drive letter or mapped volume on the rsync server.

Any input appreciated!

Hello,

That should not be a problem, space permitting, of course.

It is best to use a new, empty directory for this path. The parent directory must exist. The sub directories will be created when the job is first run: /parent/sub_directory/.

If your data host is running Windows, you can enter a normal Windows path here, such as "C:\Backups". You can also enter a path relative to the user's home directory by starting with a tilde ( e.g. "~/Backups").

If your data host is running Linux, you can use an absolute path by starting with a slash or a path relative to the user's home directory by starting with a tilde (e.g. "~/Backups").
