I am shopping to buy a new WD My Cloud drive, Two questions:
I am wondering how does the expansion USB slot on the PR4100 works. I have 8, 4TB WB portable drives, two are used as master hard drives and the other 6 are redundant backups. If I connect a 10 port USB hub in the expansion slot will all 8, 4TB Drives work? I saw a YouTube video of a guy that did it with 7 thumb drives but not portable WD drives.
If question one works, my next question would be: Will the WD Cloud use the 8, 4TB portable drives and work like the for bay PR4100 and can I just continue using the backup software I am already using? All I really want is to set up the WD Cloud to access my 8, 4TB drives I already have…I really do not want to purchase all new RED drives like the PR4100.
Appreciate any advise and help here.
