I have a 2 TB USB HDD tethered to my 3 TB MyCloud. If I understand functionality correctly, this USB drive can be used to create safepoints for the MyCloud, and a safepoint is a backup of the files on MyCloud. Is this unusually high redundant protection? My original files ore on my computer, MyCloud has a good backup of the computer files that I choose, and the USB HDD backs up MyCloud
What do I lose if I use my tethered HDD to increase capacity of my backup system to 5 TB (Cloud + USB drive)?
If my assumptions are correct and I don’t need the additional third level of redundancy for my chosen computer files, how do I change my configuration to get the 5 TB capacity?
