I want to attach an external hard drive via the USB port on the My Cloud to create and store a safepoint. I have a 4TB capacity MyCloud with 3.5TB of data on it so i obviously need another hard drive with at least 4TB capacity.
From being wirelss and uncluttered before I installed My Cloud I now find I am running wires everytwhere ; ethernets, USB connectors, mains adapters which is a real shame
WD only make one portable 4TB external hard drive and that has a thunderbolt connection so is unsuitable to connect to My cloud. The only product on the market is a Seagate external 4TB portable drive.
Does anybody know if the ;power from the USB on the MyCloud is sufficient to run a 4TB external hard drive without a separate mains power supply
