WD My Cloud home - backup automatically

It’d be nice if there was a feature to set an automatic backup of the whole My Cloud Home to an USB hard disk - for example, I would set it to back up the data once a week and it would be way better than doing it manually every time.

EDIT: I managed to work my way around this by using a spare laptop.
I installed an app called Cobian Backup, which I set up to make a mirror backup of the my cloud home onto a HDD every Sunday at midnight. I set up an event that makes the laptop go to sleep once the backup is finished. I also used Task Scheduler to wake up the laptop and restart it before the backup (so it’s not slow). So far it has been working very well.

This is something I’m also looking for. Doing a manual backup is not efficient.
