Is there a recommended product to backup the WD My Cloud using the safepoint function? A WD support employee said they recommend another My Cloud however that seems strange since you don’t need network connectivity on the backup.
Should I use a My Book with equal or greater capacity? The My Book 6TB seems to be out of stock everywhere by the 4TB is available.
What about My Book Duo? Would this mean triple redundancy since it has 2 drives? Perhaps that’s excessive.
I’ve also read many complaints about the Safepoint function. Would it be better to use SyncToy (or other software) to go from My Cloud thru the computer to another USB Device like the My Book 4TB? Seems like going thru the computer is an extra step in the transfer and additional management risk if the computer doesn’t trigger the application to run the backup.
