My Cloud vs My cloud home

Hi guys

I recently lost a lot of data that was stored on my computer HD which ended up costing a lot of $$ to recover.
I considered using a commercial cloud storage company like google or OneDrive but security and ongoing fees has me undecided about this.

I have looked into personal cloud storage and have been looking at WD options for a while but I’m a little unsure about all of the cloud products!!.
Whats the difference between ‘my cloud & my cloud home’?
how is the my cloud mirror and My cloud expert any different?

What is best for me?
I want to store all of my files, photos, music and videos centrally and be able to access them anywhere. BUT, I also have concerns about losing data by using a personal cloud device like a WD cloud device.
Is there any way I can automatically back up any WD cloud device?. I see there is a USB port in the back of the WD cloud, can I add another WD external HD to the expandable USB port on the cloud and set it to back up what is on the my cloud/my cloud home etc? or is there another option/device you could recommend that would give me a simple dual back up for personal use that isn’t complicated or expensive?
TIA
