I have a My Cloud Mirror Gen 1 6TB in use.
Some weeks ago I got a second NAS for a low price: Same Type and size, but Gen 2.
I want to use one of both as my regular NAS for my daily work and the other as a Backup system that ist removed from the network most time.
First of all: how to setup the new NAS? My idea: simply remove one of the used hard disk and replace it by one of the new NAS. I expect that the system automatically copys everything to the fresh hard disk. Is this right ?
After that i put the new one back into the new NAS. A new copy procedure will start: now from the first new hard disk to the second new hard disk.
After that all four hard disks should contain the same data. Should it work as described? Are there any things to do for me , exept physically changing the hard disks?
Some month later the daily used NAS will have newer data. What would be the best way to synchronize the backup NAS?
