Store, save and share your digital life from one central place with this LinkStation Duo 2TB (manufacturer’s code: LS-WX2.0TL/R1-EU). Pre-installed with two 1TB hard drives which gives you a potential total of 2TB storage space. You can store up to 15.5 hours of 4K video at 30 fps, 66 hours of 1080p video at 30fps, 500 two-hour DVD films, 640,000 digital photos or 33,600 hours of digital music. If you need more storage you can add an external USB drive to the LinkStation Duo (LS Duo) or you can use the USB port to plug in a printer, to share it with anyone else on the same network.
What can I use to back up my computer?
This LinkStation Duo comes supplied with five licences for NovaBACKUP professional. You can use these on Window computers to schedule backups of your important files and treasured memories straight to the NAS drive. It also supports Apple Time Machine, so Mac computer users can use their dedicated software to back up their computer. A direct copy feature allows you to automatically upload images from your digital camera or camcorder to the LinkStation Duo, once connected to the USB port, without the need of a computer.
As an insurance policy against losing your files you can set up a RAID 1 configuration. Under this configuration, when you send a file to the NAS drive it is simultaneously copied to the second drive. In essence one drive is used for storage, while the other is an exact mirror of the storage drive. You can even go further to secure your data. You can set up a backup of what is on the NAS drive to be sent over to another LinkStation over your LAN network or via USB to an external USB drive. These options give you the assurance that your data is well protected and will be available for you to restore back to normal in the event of a disk failure or accidental deletion.
What apps can I use with this NAS drive?
No matter where you are, as long as you have an internet connection you can access your NAS drive using Buffalo’s WebAccess. Through the web browser using a PC or Mac you can remotely access your files. Alternatively on a mobile device you can use WebAccess-i (for iPhones or iPads), WebAccess-i HD (for iPads) and WebAccess A (for Android devices) to gain access while on the go. A built-in BitTorrent client gives you the ability to download media files directly to your LinkStation without needing to keep your computer on, so you can have downloads scheduled for you while you are asleep or away.
What can I stream to?
The DLNA/UPnP certified media server this LinkStation supports gives you the ability to stream your multimedia to a PC, a Mac, a smart TV, projector, speaker or any other DLNA/UPnP certified device. The seamless integration with iTunes allows you to access music files stored on the LinkStation from the iTunes software on your computer.
