I would like to know if I can configure the My Cloud Mirror as two separate drives. The reason is that I would like to use one as the backup of the other. Disk mirroring is not of benefit to me because it is only for home use and generally drives are very reliable so drive failure is not of major concern to me. I prefer to do a backup instead because this provides the ability to restore files that have become corrupted, accidentally deleted or wrongly saved. Of course I could buy a separate USB drive as the backup device but this would be added cost. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
