Can you remotely mirror a WD ex 2 to a My Cloud?


I’m trying to set up an offsite backup.  I know the EX 2 has the ability to do that.  However, I don’t really want to buy two Ex 2s to mirror each other in two different locations.  I don’t need the raid and extra processing power in the backup drive, as I would only use it in the event there was a disaster with the ex2 and my local backup.

So to make this more cost effective, would it be possible for me to purchase a My Cloud of the same size and set it up for remote mirroring of the EX2?

Hi there, unfortunately the feature for remote backup only works from EX2 to EX2, EX4 and if I recall correctly the Mirror, not to the regular My Cloud, at least not without extra software.

did you ever find a way?  wonder if the in 3os will allow this?   I want to do the same thing,  EX2 12T Mirrored to 6T drives  wanted to buy a single MyCloud 6TB and keep it offsite and backup to it…
