Support for MyBook Live outside home network in SmartWare / "Cloud backup feature"


I have bought two MyBook live’s to allow off-site backup.

One device is located inside my own network and the other at a friends house.

Unfortunately it’s not possible to access the offsite device from the smartware program.

It would be great when a “cloud backup” feature would be introduced to the smartware software.

This featureshould allow backup/mirror to a Mybook outside your normal network.

Perhaps intresting feature to implement? Technical it should be feasible as WD2Go can also access the MyBook outside the home nework. 

Kind regards,


Currently Smartware is not capable of recognizing offsite devices, but you do have the option to backup your files using Drop Box.
