I have a 4TB MyCloud (A) which I use to back up some PCs using SmartWare. I would like to purchase another identical unit (B), keep it offsite, and sync some of the folders over the internet. I am concerned with geographically based threats (fire, theft, etc), and not so much with mirroring 2 drives onsite, and the offsite mirror would make that moot anyway.
I found this potentially promising thread: http://support.wdc.com/KnowledgeBase/answer.aspx?ID=13178
I downloaded WD Sync, but I realized that my MyCloud (A) interface doesn’t have all of the same options as pictured there, specifically it doesn’t have Backups, only SafePoints. Still, looking through the link it looks as if that by purchasing the new 4TB MyCloud (B), I would be able to add it as a cloud device. Once that is done, it appears I would be able to set it (B) up to sync to the backups of the PCs created by SmartWare on the first MyCloud (A).
Can anyone confirm this would work before I purchased the additional unit?
(Again, I’d prefer not to buy the more expensive Mirror version if possible, I’m not interested in redundant drives in one location, but in having redundant geographical locations.)
thanks in advance!
