You have no idea how long I was waiting for this one. For those that don’t know Raspberry Pi is SBC (Single-Board Computer) with which you can do almost anything. Because of the pocket size of this full fledged computer you can use it as a web server, mail server, cloud storage / NAS, seedbox, VPN, media center, SDR etc. and power all kinds of creative IoT projects. The beauty of the Pi lies in that it can be easily expanded with additional components such as sensors or even microcontrollers such as an Arduino.
A single dream is more powerful than a thousand realities.

Robocopy is for handling the NTFS related items such as reparse points and rsync for those with Unix properties.
