How to Make a One-Click Backup Button

In this video we'll be making a simple one-click backup button so that you can make data backups regularly with ease.

Here's the button I used in this project:

eBay US/Worldwide: http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?icep_ff3=9&pub=5575117832&toolid=10001&campid=5337657473&customid=&icep_uq=latching+Push+DPDT+Brass+Switch+22Z&icep_sellerId=&icep_ex_kw=&icep_sortBy=12&icep_catId=&icep_minPrice=&icep_maxPrice=&ipn=psmain&icep_vectorid=229466&kwid=902099&mtid=824&kw=lg

eBay UK: http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/710-53481-19255-0/1?icep_ff3=9&pub=5575117832&toolid=10001&campid=5337657473&customid=&icep_uq=latching+Push+DPDT+Brass+Switch+22Z&icep_sellerId=&icep_ex_kw=&icep_sortBy=12&icep_catId=&icep_minPrice=&icep_maxPrice=&ipn=psmain&icep_vectorid=229508&kwid=902099&mtid=824&kw=lg

Also, here are some other buttons that are compatible with this project:


FreeFileSync: http://www.freefilesync.org

Uxcell makes a latching push button switch just like that, but it has an illuminated ring around the button that you can either wire to always be on, or to be on whenever the switch is activated. This particular one comes with blue illumination, but there are others with white or red. Don't know if they are DPDT though, which seems to be what is needed. I just purchased a SPDT mode made by Ulincos for wiring up some undercabinet LED strips. I like it because I can wire it so the illuminated ring is either always lit, or lit simply when the switch is activated. I'm going to wire it so that it's always illuminated that way the switch is easy to find in the dark.

Backing up to a hard drive which is INSIDE the computer is not useless, but it is pretty close! If something happens to the computer itself, be it a power surge or fire or a flood or whatever, both the main drive and the backup drive will die together. Backups should be stored on an external device, which is to be disconnected from the computer and stored in a different location, meaning another room or ideally not in the same building.

So theoretically, you can also, when you press the button before boot, have the pc boot off of the 2nd drive?

Hi! Love your videos, this is the first one that I decided to try myself. Here's my question, the button that I bought has 6 connectors coming out of the back instead of the 8 on the button that you used. When you wired up the red wires, you said to repeat it in the exact same way so I assume that the other two connectors on your button are also connected when the button is pressed? If that's the case, could I simply use the same connector for both the yellow and red wires? I understand that one yellow wire must go on one connector and the other must go on the other (whichever is connected while the button is pressed), but is it possible for the red and yellow wires to share the same one? I tried this at home and I fail to boot whenever power is given to the device, pressed or not. Thanks for any help in advance!

This mode of backup does not protect against accidental file deletion. If you delete a file by mistake and want to recover it form the backup the moment you connect the drive the file is also deleted from the backup.

For adding protection against drive failure you should use raid 1 or 10(faster, more expensive)
Back ups drives should ideally be stored in a different location from your computer. A back up should get you going again if you are infected by viruses or ransomware but it should also protect against physical harm such as theft or fire.

don't get me wrong, its really cool. but setting up a raid 2 would be mutch easier. wouldn't protect you from ransom ware, though.

Автор DoomFinger511 ( назад)
That whole button setup is unnecessary. You should always be backing up. It's easier to just connect a regular hard drive into the computer, install that software and have it running all the time. Then EVERY file you save or delete will ALWAYS be backed up with not additional effort.

Автор iSonikYT ( назад)
Kinda did this with Hdparm in Windows. Dismounting and silencing my INTERNAL Backup HDD.

I programmed a script to mount the HDD then start the Back UP (with FFS).
As soon as the Back up finishes the Script automaticly Spinsdown the HDD and dismounts it again.

can you diy a key swith to turn on your pc instead of just a button?

Автор hellcat1988 ( назад)
Another way to do this with an external drive for both towers and laptops would be to buy a cheap usb3 to sata cable and set up the software on an ssd for backups. The usb interface provides enough power to run most ssd on the market and it removes the "hot swap" steps. It's also much faster and more reliable than a hard drive as it is MUCH harder to cause damage to the drive or have data loss as long as you plug it in every few weeks or months.

I'm sure most people would back up their date more often than that, but I have heard some data can be lost over time on an ssd if it's not powered for extended periods of time.

Hi, great project. Just wondering if the switch you used is a DPDT? Or is it just DPST? It's kind of hard to find information about these things. Also, could you consider doing another video on exactly which poles you connected the wires to?

I have always wanted a hardware solution that can turn HDD on/off and provides a simple API for that, like "bool turn_disk(bool on)". I could not find any. The ones I could find only a hardware button for that, making it useless for a remote server.
