I do not understand why this is not possible ?
It should only require a small update to the software to allow to take a back up from my NAS.
I do not like the fact that I cannot easily take a backup of the files on my WD My Cloud Home.
- The fast usb connection at the back of the WD My Cloud Home can only be used to copy files from external device to the WD My Cloud Home device. NOT from the WD My Cloud Home device to an external HD, such as my WD My passport.
- WD backup sofware cannot be used to automatically take a back up via the network of my WD My Cloud Home to my WD My passport.
- Copying all files (4TB) manually over the network (10MB/s) via Explorer, will need my laptop to be actively copying the files for ~5 days. During which nothing may go wrong and I cannot turn down my laptop.
All this makes it very user UNfriendly to take a back-up of my WD My Cloud Home. It is very prone to errors/and hard to do continuous maintenance.
Could you please help me to provide a useful solution to take a back-up of my WD My Cloud Home device ?
I would be very greatful!
