I am using a MyCloud EX2 Ultra devise with 2 X 4 TB drives, mirroring them (Volume_1 RAID_1).
My target is to have the Volume_1 drive (or most of it) as an external connected drive to my PC. I have done this through ISCSI, using 2TB of the 4 available. I used the letter H for the ICSI drive in my PC.
When I log to my MyCloudEX2Ultra web-page, I see that half of the storage is empty, the other half (the 2TB) are used by “Other”.
I have the following basic questions about the usage of ISCSI, I could not find the basic answers:
I want this H drive to be constantly backed up to the other drive, I just want the other to be the mirror basically, so that I can work on the files in H and be sure that I have a continuous backup. Is this working in this way or I need to set-up something specific?
Can I access the data contained in H from outside the network (e.g. if I am not connected to the same network - e.g. when travelling)?
What happens if I disable and delete the ISCSI from the MyCloud storage devise? Will I lose everything or things are saved in the 2 drives and I will just not have the ISCSI connection anymore?
