Exact replica of macbook pro


Any help would be apprecitated here… I have a macbook pro with a WD wired backup… I thought the 3tb Icloud would work the same… it has taken me days to upload all my info to the icloud unit using timemachine on the mac… The q I have is does Wd also backup your icloud unit or not…

Also once fully backed up on the icloud can you access you macbook as if it is what you would see if you have the macbook with you or does it simply just show files you choose to share on your wd my cloud app

Hi mate

I thought you could back up to the iCloud drive then access your macbook stuff from work for example but it appears you have to drag and drop all files you want access to ?

did you get the chance to look plse

Just to be clear, iCloud is an Apple service that works in a similar way to dropbox. The My Cloud is a personal NAS that will only save your files on locally, WD will not make any additional copies of your files. You can access any files you copy to the My Cloud either locally or remotelly. Check the following links for more information on how you can do this.
