You could create a script with something like SyncBack to have the internal storage automatically sync to the external storage, or perhaps the My Cloud software will allow you to do that automatically.

And you are right that when a disaster strikes, it could take out both drives, but that’s usually when a disaster occurs, or something even like a serious power surge. Generally speaking, it’d be very rare for two drives to die at the same time of natural causes ;-)

(when “disaster happens” probably will strike the 2 disks at the same time… haha)

Alternatively, you could have two My Clouds and then sync them to each other.

If the drive goes, that’s it. An alternative is the My Book Live Duo, but that thing is ~$550. You can get a good, empty dual bay NAS and a set of 2 TB WD NAS drives for that price if you shop around.

I guess this one is geared more towards retention with a separate backup location as well, or simply for streaming.
