I have the Lacie Minidisk Ethernet 500 GB that contains all my house PC backup. I both an USB Minidisk Lacie (1 GB) in order to use MySafe feature but it never worked.
Use MySafe to back up the files stored on the Ethernet Disk mini Home to
an attached USB storage device. This way, if files on the Ethernet Disk
mini are damaged or accidentally deleted, you can restore them to their
There are three main steps to using MySafe,Connecting an external USB hard drive,Backing up files to the external USB hard drive,Restoring files to the Ethernet Disk mini (if necessary)
Before you can back up files, you need to connect a hard drive to your
Ethernet Disk mini via the USB port on the back. Use a hard drive that is USB 2.0 compatible.
While connecting an external hard drive make sure your Ethernet Disk mini is turned on and connected to your network.Turn on the external USB hard drive.Connect the external hard drive's USB cable to the USB port on the back
of the Ethernet Disk mini, just like you would connect the external
hard drive to your computer.Confirm that the drive is
properly connected. Log in and click on the Administer HipServ link.
Click on USB External Storage under System.
To back up files, navigate to the file or folder you want to back up to
the external hard drive and click on the disk icon in the "Backup"
column of the file list.When you back up files to MySafe, the
Ethernet Disk mini duplicates the file path in MySafe so that everything
you back up is organized in MySafe just as in its original location.
So, if you copy a file from MyLibrary, a MyLibrary folder will appear in
MySafe, with all folders leading to the backed up file.
Always click the Safely Remove Drive button on the USB External Storage
before unplugging your MySafe external hard drive. Wait for the
interface to change and for the Use Drive button to appear before
disconnecting the USB cable from the Ethernet Disk mini. Failure to safely remove your external hard drive before
disconnecting the USB cable can cause data loss and/or damage the drive.
Always use the Safely Remove Drive feature when disconnecting an
external hard drive.
