Backup dashcam recordings to HDD with pi

Sat May 21, 2016 7:23 pm

I'm taking a driving trip to France over the summer and will be getting a dash cam to record the journey (around 10 hours). I am looking to edit these video files into a single 10 min film.

I'm not planning to take a laptop and I want to use a pi to backup the sd card to usb HDD so I can keep recording and not lose any data - I'm thinking that rsync should do the trick but will the pi be able to transfer 64gb of data from sd to hdd in a reasonable time?

If not any any ideas for compact and light solutions to backup the data to hdd?

b raspbian running get-iplayer and mini dlna server
b+ running volumio
pi 2 - dietpi - pihole, ssh and a few other bits
