I just bought a Duo storage device to replace my older IX2 NAS. Really dissapointed seeing that it REQUIRES an internet connection. I don’t recall seeing that listed on the site selling it, otherwise I would have looked elsewhere. I just want network drives that I can drop the data to for backup. I don’t want or need a live internet connection for the device, just more of a security risk. I don’t want to have to sign in to WD whatever dot com just to get to my data. I wish you (WD) would learn that not everyone likes to share all of their stuff with you corporations. I just need a simple device to back up my WORK and PHOTOS!
If someone knows of a way to set this up as a simple network drive please let me know, that’s all that I want or need.
