I’m happy with my cloud home duo for plex- potential buyers beware and read up about it first as it’s not the new MyCloud- totally different device...
please could someone explain how these work? is data stored on the hard drive and also in the cloud? I'm looking for a safe solution to store photos. I use a dslr camera and shoot in raw so the files are quite large. Thanks

I've got an older version of this and whilst I think you can sign up for some cloud storage with it, it isn't a mirror of what the drive would hold. 6TB of cloud storage will set you back a small fortune these days. These drives don't connect via the normal USB cable that an external drive does, they connect via an ethernet cable, so you are accessing it through your home network. They are 'in between' an external HDD and an NAS. It really depends on how much you want to spend and what you need to do, but I have settled on the WDMYBook Duos recently and set them up with RAID1 to mirror the drives. The two I have (16TB and 20TB) give me 16TB of storage with back-ups and connect via USB3, for instantly accessible storage on my main computer, I have the WDMYCloud and two Buffalo Linkstations for storage that I can access via the various computers I use on my network, and, at last count, I have 65 external HDDs with data on that I manually mirror where necessary. I'm dealing with large TIFF images and only back up reduced resolution jpegs to the cloud as reference when out and about.

They store files locally, but are available through an app on your phone, or a web browser if you want to enable it.

However, as someone mentioned, these are not the same as the earlier versions, which allow the drive to be mounted locally through something like cifs. Aiui, you need an application for your Windows/Mac machine to mount a drive, or use a web browser. If you use another OS you're stuck with the web browser to access your files.

Thanks so much, I think I need to do some research and find something more suitable for my needs. 6tb should be plenty storage but I like the idea of hard drive and cloud backup
