It really is disappointing to me that the USB 3.0 is so incredibly slow. WOW!
I have the 2TB MyCloud and I also have a 2TB Toshiba External that I simply want to use as a mirror/backup of the MyCloud (should have just bought the MyCloud w/ Mirror built in, huh?!).
So… my safepoint is 12% currently and it started 3.5 hours ago. It’s only backing up 150 gigs! Lol.
So, what are the suggestions?? I don’t really have any more open USB ports on my machine, they are all taken up by other **bleep**… do I really want to go buy a USB hub?! (Most posts I’ve read seem to just plug in the external to their PC and direct the backup to this drive, yuck!) This is a laptop machine so…wow, that would be a major pain in the **bleep** when I needed to be mobile.
Just wish that USB port would function normally!
Anyway, thoughts? Ideas? What have other people in a similar situation done?
One other thought I have is… and this is rather embarressing, but I had no idea there WAS a MyCloud Mirror until after I had already purchased the MyCloud and an external drive for the purpose of mirroring the MyCloud. Now that I’ve discovered how horrible that USB port on the back is… should I just return everything and get a MyCloud Mirror (the 4TB…aka 2TB… is the same price)?
