WD My Cloud Mirror, Personal Cloud Storage & Network Attached Storage Drive, 8TB

Product information

Make doubly sure your files are safe with the My Cloud Mirror from WD. This wireless network attached storage (NAS) system contains two drives, with a total capacity of a colossal 8TB and is internet connected too, so you can also access all your data through the means of your own personal ‘cloud’ from any internet connected device. If you want to make doubly sure your data is backed up then use the second hard drive to create a mirror image back up.

Mirrored Backup
My Cloud Mirror features RAID configuration (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) to help you keep your files securely backed up through Mirror Mode. Choosing Mirror Mode (RAID 1) as the default setting will provide ultra-safe data protection by creating duplicates of your data. You can also set the drive to RAID 0 to boost performance, making it perfect for designing or editing graphic intensive media files or JBOD (Just a Bunch Of Disks) to access each drive independently.

Access anywhere
Using the WD Cloud feature allows you to store all your media and files on your My Cloud at home and access them securely over the internet. There are no monthly subscriptions and unlike web based clouds you know exactly where all your data is being stored, securely on your My Cloud. If you have a smartphone or tablet you can use the WD App to bring your photos and files to your fingertips.

Massive Storage
The total capacity of this dual drive system is 8TB. This colossal storage space could allow you to save up to 1,600,000 photos or 615 hours of video or 2,000,000 songs on this drive, depending on file size, format and settings. Connect your hard drive to your wireless network and the clever My Cloud will automatically back up everything you save using either WD's SmartWare Pro software on PC or Apple Time Machine on a Mac.

Add More
Thanks to the two additional USB 3.0 ports on My Cloud Mirror, you can add even more storage, through an external USB hard drive.

Q & As

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Easy to set up & use I use this to backup two Windows laptops and general storage of other files as part of the backup strategy for our company. It was straightforward to set up and the 8TB should satisfy my needs for the time being. It's quiet when operating and whilst other reviews mention it is quite slow at the backups I haven't found this to be the case. I would definitely recommend it. 23 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by WD Cloud Great bit of kit for a small business. Instant access although I hope they upgrade the access panel so you can scroll through files better. Easy set up and Easy use :o) 11 November 2014
