Safepoit to usb hdd on a windows


i try to backup my “mycloud” 4tb to a “seagate” 5tb conected to a windows 7 comuter. they are on the same network so that is not the problem when i searches in the “mycloud” client it will nott find the sheard 5tb seagate hdd. i have sheard it on the network and i can find it on my oter computers. Will this even work or not? 

No it will not work, you need to plug it directly into the WD MyCloud USB port.
