I have been reading this forum, but unfortunately I have not found answers to my questions, so sorry if , so maybe someone can help!
A 2Tb MyCloud device in a secondary remote location to be used as a remote backup for data stored on a server located at primary location.
MyCloud is configured with few users (Un), each having its own private folder (\Un).
Local server (Win 2012 R2) is storing documents and picture, updated on a daily basis.
Having a backup tool running on the local server as a windows service, able to connect to the MyCloud device to sync data from local folders (“documents”, “photos”, etc…) with subfolders of the public folder, or of one of the private user’s folder…
- So far, I have seen how to manually connect to a remote MyCloud device by connecting first to the wdmycloud website, then mapping the remote folder as shared drive.
Is it possible to do the same:
- directly from windows ((2012 R2 or 8.1) knowing MyCloud device IP, shared name and user’s credentials.
- from a tool like WebDrive (I have been unsuccessfully trying using the WebDav or SecuredWebDav options).
I know that possibly I can use the FTP access, but would be interested by the WebDav approach.
Do you know any backup tool able to use a remote MyCloud device as a backup target ? Not sure Smartware can do that, maybe the pro version ?
How would you manage (create folders, upload/download files) from DotNet ? Is there any API available on MyCloud device ?
I welcome any help or comment !
