ReadyDR replicate .timemachine share

Hi,

 

I need to replicate my .timemachine hidden share to my DR ReadyNAS.

How this can be done?

 

Currently I have File Backup job that copies .timemachine to different share and then that is raplicated to DR, but this is using too much of space so that it is usable anymore.

Is there away to replicate .timemachine directly?

One option would be to replace the file backup job with a cron job that copies with --reflink set.  That is similar to snapshots, in that the copy will share the same blocks as the original (so there is no increase in on-disk space).

 

I guess you could try replacing .timemachine with a soft link to a share - no idea if that would work, but generally it does.
