Simple to use cloud storage solution without the monthly fee
Organise all your family’s pictures, videos, music and important documents into one central location and access in and outside your home with this Seagate Personal Cloud NAS drive (manufacturer’s code: STCR5000200). It comes pre-installed a 5TB Seagate NAS hard drive disk (HDD) that is designed to cope with the 24/7 NAS environment. This gives you plenty of space to store up to 38.75 hours of 4K video at 30 fps, 165 hours of 1080p video at 30 fps, 1,250 two-hour DVD films, 1.6 million digital photos or 83,300 hours of digital music. Adding new users to the Personal Cloud is as easy as sending an email, a dedicated folder is then created for them to personally use. The built-in print server also lets you share a print with users connected to the same network.

What are the various backups can I do?
Backup Windows and Mac computers automatically and continuously through the Seagate Dashboard or with Apple Time Machine on Mac computers. Off-site backups can be established too, ensuring if something were to happen in the area your NAS drive is in your files are still safe. A connected USB drive can be a target for a backup or have files from it backed up to the NAS drive. You can then configure backups to happen automatically when the drive is plugged in and have it auto-eject when the backup is finished. A network backup to another computer or NAS can be delivered too.

What’s more if you have a Dropbox or Google Drive account you can easily transfer and backup files to the Personal Cloud or transfer files from the Personal Cloud to the cloud service. This frees up space on the cloud which will save you money if your cloud service is running out of free storage space. Additionally, you can backup to Amazon S3, Baidu, Box, Strato HiDrive and Yandex.Disk cloud services, giving you a range of off-site cloud based locations to store your backups and files.

What apps can I use with this Seagate Personal Cloud?
Manage and access your digital content on the road using the Seagate Media app which can be installed on Android, iOS, Windows 8 tablets and Amazon Kindle. Through the Seagate Media app you can view your content by type or size for quick and easy navigation. You can even off-load and backup your pictures and videos that are stored on your smartphone or tablet, freeing up valuable and limited storage space so you can take more.

A Seagate program that can be installed on your computer is Sdrive, which allows you to access and use the NAS drive as if it were locally connected to the computer. Even if your computer were to be connected to a different Wi-Fi connection or mobile internet. To improve on the functionality even more, you can install third party apps, such as BitTorrent Sync, ElephantDrive, WordPress and ownCloud.

Can I stream the files stored?
The DLNA certification of this Personal Cloud means you can access files stored on it from computers, game consoles, Smart TVs, set top boxes and other DLNA certified devices on the same network. Additionally, with the iTunes server built-in you can stream your music to Windows or Mac computers using iTunes. This means you do not have to dedicate space on your computer to store your music collection.

Using the Seagate Media app on your smartphone or tablet gives you the ability to cast your content to a Chromecast, LG Smart TV or Roku player, so you can share what you are watching to the big screen in your home. The app can also be installed on a Roku player, Samsung smart TV or Blu-ray player with Smart Hub (2012 model or later) to enjoy easy browsing through your remote control.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great, but there is better I'd only buy this when the offer is below £150 as even though it is good, it has flaws. The remote access just does not work at all, I have spent so much time trying to get it work and it just doesn't. Spoken to Seagate too and they aren't any help. If you want just a home NAS, then below £150 when on offer, this is a bargain. It has quite slow read/write speeds my comparison, but that's the case with cheaper NAS. If you want remote access, then seriously, don't waste your money. The cloud features are cumbersome and basically render them useless.

If I attach via the usb connection, say a 1Tb external hard drive to the Seagate 5Tb nas drive, will I be able to access files from the standard 1Tb hard drive remotely over the internet either in or out of the home?

Asked by: Saint1973
Yes the port on the Seagate nas is to add other drivers to expand storage so this should work fine.
