How to configure a Replication policy for a source-target pair?

Replication Policy

In order for Wasabi Cloud NAS to automatically replicate files from a source to the target, you can
simply specify for how long a file has not been modified in order for it to be added to the replication queue. By default, the global replication policy is set to 1 minute. 

There are two ways you can configure a Replication policy on Wasabi Cloud NAS.

  1. Global Replication policy - Valid for all Source - Target Pairs
  2. Source-Target specific Replication Policy - Overwrites the Global policy by specifying different parameters for a given pair of source and target.

Global Replication Policy

1. Click Replication policy in the left pane of the Wasabi Cloud NAS Configuration.

2. In the right pane, specify the time after which an unchanged file is sent to the queue for replication. Enter the desired number and selecting the unit of measure in the drop-down box beside it.

3. Click Apply

Note - To read about excluding sub folders from being managed, refer to this Knowledge Base article.
