Bonus Training: Robocopy and Jungledisk Click-by-Click

Shout out to all the folks who have attended (or registered for) the SMB Roadshow: I've just posted two video trainings and two extra checklists to download. They're in the "Registered Attendee Downloads" at

One of the strategies discussed on the Roadshow is using Jungledisk to map a drive letter in the cloud storage (e.g., Rackspace or AWS). And while I gave you the UP and DOWN Robocopy scripts, one member of the Roadshow Facebook group asked for more detail.

So, I set up a sample data store with just over 2 GB of data and walked through every piece of the process:

- Copy data to the cloud storage
- Install Jungledisk agents on all desktops
- Make the cloud storage the primary data store
- Backup the cloud storage to the local machine in a new "companybackup" directory

The checklist documents are:
R1 – Robocopy to JungleDisk Checklist
R2 – Jungledisk Desktop Setup

The videos also mention handouts 19 and 24 from the zipped handouts you should already have.

Thanks to Brian for posting the request.

If you have questions, post them in the SMB Roadshow Facebook group: (This is a closed group for registered attendees).
