    What kind of HDD does this enclosure have, is it a NAS drive?   (1 Answer)

      The device in itself is not a NAS and contains standard drive (not sure which specifically), not necessarily one designed for NAS. Any drive can be used as a NAS drive, though.

      You will need other hardware/software to use this with a cloud. It is just an external hard drive. I use it with a dedicated PC running Amahi a linux based home server and this gives it cloud capabilities.

      It works for Xbox one and a PC for sure. Im not 100% sure for playstation 4 but i would say it does work. I dont think it will work for xbox 360 since there is an external storage limiter for that console

    What is the difference between the 8TB expansion external drive and the 8TB backup external drive?   (3 Answers)

      This Expansion drive does not have a USB hub built in like the backup drive does. Also the backup drive states it comes with backup software. So, no hub & no backup software.
