I am currently running win7 with a My Book mirror 2tb usb. I want to make my network storage accessible from my laptop, tablets and stereo. I primarily use my external storage for backups of photos (amateur photographer), music, and documents. No movies. I have the mirror for protection but now I might back up photos to the cloud. I want to be able to use the external storage for backup and and as a music server to my stereo.
So here are the questions. Is my best bet to get the my book 4tb cloud or a nas enclosure for my existing drives? If I go the new my book can I hook my old usb my book to it to act as my mirror or for additional storage? If I use it as additional storage is it readily available across the wireless network? Can I backup my photo folder on the 4 tb my book to the Amazon cloud in the WD software? Is the drive capable of acting as a music server with the Sonos system ( is it fast enough)? Can I access it remotely through my wifi firewall?
I know, a lot of questions but I think that is it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
