We’ve all been there before — we’re plugging away, working, fulfilling obligations, sharing the memories we’ve captured and cataloging the others away. It’s all very business as usual until suddenly, it isn’t. The computer crashes. Nothing was backed up. Everything is gone. I have been there a few times myself (because evidently it takes something happening more than once to teach me a lesson) and each time was devastating.
I have led an active e-life since I was a teenager, and I have been a blogger since before The Powers That Be came up with the term “blogger.” I have created, written, and managed numerous blogs, forums, and websites — Woman Tribune alone since 2008. That’s a long time, ripe with opportunity to lose a lot of important files, pictures, and data — and I did. Now, things are different, and the task of backing up your files has been completely revolutionized.
Do you remember when backing up your files meant dragging them over to a floppy disk for safe keeping? If only we knew back then that the future would bring us stylish 6-inch-tall white boxes capable of storing our entire e-life in just a few clicks. I’m talking about the WD My Cloud Mirror — a personal cloud with a built-in backup plan.
We all know and have come to rely on “the cloud.” We also have come to know its flaws and the security breaches that can come with utilizing it. What makes the My Cloud Mirror different is that it is your own personal cloud storage safely located in your own home.
The My Cloud Mirror comes with everything you need to start storing files in about five minutes. Plug it into your router and a power outlet, then head over to the website and follow the instructions for setting up and you’re done.
Whether you need to free up space on your phone, tablet, or computer, or just make sure everything on all of your devices is safe and sound should anything happen, the My Cloud Mirror can store all of your important files and memories away for safe keeping. Because it has a dual drive, not only do your important files get stored onto the drive, but everything is also copied onto a secondary backup for twice the protection. Hello, peace of mind!
My husband is a musician, and to keep his music files (which are ridiculously large) safe, he has taken to accumulating way too many hard drives. Talk about a headache when trying to find the right music file! With the My Cloud Mirror’s 4 terabytes of space, he can KEEPITCOMING™. What I love most about this personal cloud is that you can access your files from anywhere there’s an internet connection, so if you’re out of town and need a file on your computer back at home, if you’ve synced it up with your My Cloud Mirror, you can retrieve that file instantly. How cool is that?!
The My Cloud Mirror is available in 4 TB, 6 TB, and 8 TB, and comes with a 2-year limited warranty. It is compatible with Windows® 10, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 7 or Windows Vista®, Mac OS® X El Capitan, Yosemite, Mavericks™, Mountain Lion™, Lion™, as well as DLNA®/UPnP® enabled devices.
Forget the public cloud! Be in control of your own data with the WD My Cloud Mirror, and get anywhere access to your important content stored safely at home.

I’ve been getting the red blinky light that comes on when my hard drive is almost full lately so I’m really in need of a secure solution. This sounds like it would be a perfect way to store all my files safely!
I am absolutely loving the sound of the cloud mirror, the fact that I can access them anywhere but also have the hard drive at home is even more attractive than other options out there.
I’ve seen this around and I really think it’s a great product. I need this to protect my files.
I really like the sound of this, it sounds so handy to have and a good backup against dropbox and iCloud x
I really need to get one of these, I only use dropbox to backup my file. So everything online. Thanks for sharing

This sounds like a fantastic platform to have
I’ve heard a lot of great feedback about this gadget, it looks cool and great to have this.
Look like an amazing backup solution. 4 TB is a whole heck of a lot of storage and I love that is operates with many different systems. I am curious how does it keep your items safe? What kind of safety system does it use.
This is great to have, I’ve heard a lot of good review about cloud and it’s awesome. It’s so nice to see and heard about this cool gadget, I wish they also offered too in our country here at PH.
It’s so important to backup your files. We have a small Seagate.
Me and my family should get this, it looks amazing, I’ll have to tell my mom about this.

WD has been a great company for my storage and blogging files.
Saw another post about this recently and will most definitely look into getting one asap. Thanks for the reminder.
Very cool device. I will check it out
I so need one of these. I ask my hubby to use his and he can’t find it half the time. Arghh!
This is such a great idea! I need to get one of these, thank you for sharing!!!
That is so cool! I’m asking for one for Christmas.
This is the first time I have heard about this product. I will have to look into this as I often have problems with the computer crashing. I have lost so much work in the past due to crashes.
This is a very useful tool. I got a lot of files that needs to be backed-up.
This really seems like it’s the answers to all my problems lol. Although I’m not sure how it would work with my laptop, I’m sure there’s a way. Being a blogger for so long definitely gives you bragging rights! I wish I would have started years ago 🙁
Need to get one asap. Had too many issues recently. 🙁 Need to check if its available in my country first.
OMG! I need this…last time I dropped my external drive and all my files especially my treasured photographs were there 🙁
I need something like this, I am so all over the place in different “clouds” so much data out there.
I have lost stuff before and was able to recover the HD, like a month later, so I know the pain. I have ample space on my desktop, a spare laptop, dropbox for file sharing an external HD for back ups (now 2) and have CrashPlan which backs up EVERYTHING on my computer, several times a day. Love it, would highly recommend!
This is very convenient and it’s something that would be of great use for me. I have a question though, does this have to be plugged all the time for you to access and sync your files?
I lost a bunch of data when my computer had a bad motherboard earlier this year. This would have saved me! Looking firward to getting one soon.
