Instantly increase your storage to meet your needs
This WD Mirror 6TB NAS drive (manufacturer’s code: WDBZVM0060JWT-EESN) provides you with a personal cloud storage system that you do not have to pay a monthly fee for. Two 3TB WD red hard drives supply you with a potential maximum storage space of 6TB. These hard drives have been optimised to deal with the demanding needs of a NAS drive and therefore give you a more efficient operation, compared to traditional drives. The storage space can always be increased at a later date by attaching an external USB drive, into one of the two USB 3.0 ports for an immediate boost.

What kind of backups can I set up?
You can back up your Windows computer via the WD SmartWare Pro application or Mac computers via Apple Time Machine. The backups can be scheduled to happen automatically, covering a single folder or the complete computer. Alternatively, you can set backups to automatically occur when a change has been made in the folder/computer, speeding up the backup process.

To ensure files and backups are stored safely on the NAS drive and not lost during a rare disk failure, WD has configured this to be RAID 1 as a default. This disk management setting essentially uses one of the two hard drives to ‘mirror’ content that is stored on the other. This means you have the same content on the two drives and if one were to ever fail, you would have a backup available. This setting also limits the stock storage you will initially have to just 3TB.

Any attached USB devices can be used as a target for backups, as well as being used to increase the overall storage of your NAS drive. Likewise, the compatibility with Amazon S3 and ElephantDrive allows you to backup what is stored on the WD Mirror to the cloud. Owners of more than one My Cloud Mirror or a My Cloud EX4 can arrange for information on this NAS drive to be saved remotely. This multitude of backup options help to secure your data to make certain it doesn’t get lost when a drive failure does occur.

What apps are available for this NAS drive?
Free up space on your Apple iOS or Android smart device, with the My Cloud app, allowing you to save and backup your pictures and videos to your own personal cloud storage. Apps can be installed onto the WD Mirror, and as a default, http downloader, FTP, P2P and web file viewer are already installed. These apps allow you to automate and schedule downloads/backups to happen through a web link, share files and view the content of the NAS via the dashboard. Third party apps can be installed as well, such as WordPress, Plex and aMule, so you can customise the Mirror to suit your needs.

What can I stream to with this NAS drive?
The DLNA and UPnP certification of the NAS drives means as long as other DLNA and UPnP devices are connected to the same network, media files can be streamed to the device. Smart TVs, media players and speakers are just some example of such devices. Installing Plex on the NAS drive also lets you stream to any smart device that can install the Plex app, opening up the range of different devices you can stream to.

What other features are available?
You can create users and give them access to the WD Mirror. Users or groups can then be assigned portions of the drive to either share or use themselves. This makes it perfect for small businesses to utilise the WD Mirror as a server for their employees. To avoid interruptions in the constant operation of this NAS drive, an UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) can be connected via USB or network, giving you temporary power if your power supply goes.
