WD Mycloud single bay doesn't support remote backup

  1. Hello,

    Recently I bought 2 Western Digital Single bay My Cloud. One to store my local backups and a second one to make a copy of the first cloud storage to the second one so I could keep a backup out site my home.

    This is what I did also with a previous edition (MyBook live).

    WD says now to me that only the new single bay storage doesn't support external backup-ups even when an icon is build in to create a remote storage. All other my cloud storages does support the remote backup. The version I bought is firmware 2.xx.xx. The previous firmware version 4.xx.xx does support a remote backup.

    WD wouldn't help me to solve this issue so does any one know a solution how to fix this? Otherwise I want to warn other customers about this lack of functionality of this my cloud edition.

    Kind regards,

    Richard Meijn

    Instead of running two independent backups to unique devices,
    clone or copy the local backup to the remote device.
