      Thank you all for your posts, I now realize how very little I know about pc/software.

      Sad to say i am just an end user that gets frustrated by their lack of knowledge and you guys make it look so easy, not jealous honestly !

      Thanks

        Steve,

        There are examples/pictures of using plugin below.

        basically just create a directory on your Linux box or use a share drive.

        The Linux directory structure is different than the Windows directory structure.

        Here is an example:

        Homeseer is in the /usr/share/HomeSeer directory.

        mkdir /home/homeseer/backup

          Pete,

          Thanks

          So something like below, its the usb flash drive where the backup file path im unsure of.
          I wanted to backup complete Homeseer file in a separate place (usb stick permanently plugged in to SEL) just in case problem with SEL.

          Or.....an I making this hard work doing it this way? wanted to setup an event that backs up every 24hrs using Blades PI

            I don't have a Troller but on a typical linux distro flash drives don't automount. If it does you should get some indication. If not you will need to mount it.

            Before inserting the drive:

            > cd /dev
            > ls

            You will see dozens of devices listed. Your hard drives are usually sda, sdb, sdc... and the flash drive is a hard drive in linux. Those are the drives. The partitions on sda will be sda1, sda2, sda3... Find the last sdx device that is partitioned and note the letter (maybe sdb). The one after that will be your USB drive when you mount it. Let's assume it is sdc. Insert the flash drive.

            > sudo mount -t (file system type) /dev/sdc /media/(your name)/USB.

            Replace /media/(your name)/USB with the location where you want to mount the drive if you prefer somewhere else. The (file system type) will probably be ext3 or FAT, however you formatted the drive. Either will work with Linux. If you want to use the drive in Windows also use FAT.

            > cd /media/(your name)/USB
            > ls

            You should see the contents of your flash drive. If it automounted you can skip most of that and just observe the contents of /dev with the drive in or out. Be sure to unmount the drive before removing it.

            > sudo umount /dev/sdc

              Mikaluch,

              Thank you, I will give this a go when I am a little more confident with Linux.

                I know. Mounting/unmounting is a hassle. It is one of the core actions you will need to learn that are significantly different than Windows. I still have to frequently refer to man when mounting. There are many options. "Man" as in man mount. This will bring up an exhaustive dull incredibly detailed set of instructions for most commands.
