I’m just using couple of weeks WD My Cloud 2 TB and I have decided it would be better to make an safepoint backup.
Currently I have external 300 GB USB drive which seems to be to small therefore I need to buy another one.
I thought to buy exactly the same capacity as WD it means 2 TB and make mirror copies.
Can you reccomnd some USB ext drive worth to be bought ? General issue is if I should select USB drive with separate power supply or more expensive one powered by WD My Cloud USB port ? It is work then ? I mean if WD My Cloud USB port has enough power to run such big external USB disk ?
One more question regarding safe points.
If I setup regular updates is current safe point overwritten or is it new one created ?
Are the files visible and usabel on other PC on backup disk or it is special format preapred by WD my cloud ? What about access rights as if I can create just 1:1 copy not selecting shares how to prevent it on USB backup ?
Thanks for help
