Can I use EX2 Ultra as target for USB3 backups?


Silly question but is it possible to use an EX2 Ultra as a USB3 backup from another NAS?

I have an Asustor NAS with 10TB on it. I can already back it up to the EX2 Ultra using FTP and it worked quite well.

But I want to know if it’s possible to take advantage of the high speeds offered by USB3.

So can the Ultra accept a USB input from another NAS?

Hi @jd276,

Have you opened a Support Case? If not opened, for more information, please contact the WD Technical Support team for the best assistance and troubleshooting:

Thanks. Yes, I have just submitted one.

Answer is no. Not in the way I want to do it, anyway. My main NAS doesn’t recognise the WD as a USB target.
