Re: WD Cloud network hard disk extremly slow

View Post
I was think about a NAS but there is a question of a backup anyway: drives powered up/spinning long time - shorter life, risk of an electric surge killing all the drives at once, a virus wiping or encrypting them and most likely a theft.
I've ended up with external disk drives and alway keep one of them at another location.
I have two NASs (should I have written I have two Noses?). One of them is a Synology 411j. running 24/7 since the day I bought it (2010 or possibly 2008), less downtime for moves. I've repopulated the disks a couple of times.

Just keeps chugging along. No problem whatsoever.

If you have a biz you could put one at work and the other at home and run cross backups over the internet for a reasonably cheap two site storage.
