I just purchased a My Cloud Home 4TB and I’m just waiting for it to come in. When initially doing research for the device, I found that the previous generation for this model had an auto back up function that would create an image of the internal drive and put it on an external one. I might have incorrectly assumed that that feature would be carried over to the next generation, so I ordered it.
I have since learned that the external USB function on this newer model is extremely limited compared to previous devices. I want to know if it is at all possible to create a backup or image of the My Cloud Home on an external drive, and whether it can be automated or not. I plan on using the drive as a main storage hub for all of my files and media and I bought the device under the impression that I can further backup those files to an external drive. If this is not possible, I will be returning the device.
