Even if you disagree (which would be ludicrous, by the way), I want to tell you about why you should set up your own private cloud for your home office or creative business, how you can use your cloud, the types of things you should be backing up, and a daily routine you can do when you finish work for the day (checklist style) to keep you organized and sane.
I want to share five ways that getting set up with WD’s My Cloud EX2 is different from other storage options, and thus beneficial.
The absolute first thing I noticed was how much faster it was to load files to my private cloud with EX2. And if I may be honest for a moment, at the end of a long day, or long video edit, the last thing I want to do is wait several minutes for my files to be secure in the cloud. You can get a My Cloud EX2 that goes up to 8 TB, and it’s still expandable after that. So my brother came in town and requested that I create him an account with the My Cloud EX2 I was setting up.
The nifty desktop app keeps your PC or Mac connected to your personal cloud, regardless of your location.
WD’s mobile app lets you transfer files between your personal cloud, Dropbox, and other public cloud accounts very simply. THREE: Did you love it enough to have a completely weird photo shoot with it in front of a very hip, Austin, art wall?
Of course there are simple USB external drives, but I think they can be challenging in that they require the extra step of finding them, plugging them in, storing, and unplugging.
I have been aware of these personal cloud devices for a while, but I’ve never had any trouble accessing my remote files on DropBox, iCloud or Evernote.
I DO use the Time Machine function on my main Mac to back up automatically every hour to a hard drive on my desk, but I like your end of day list and will try it this week. And actually, I’m not against remote storage, as long as you also have immediately accessible storage as well.
Thank you for a product referral post that was full of information that I could resonate with and really connect with!! Sierra, thank you for reading, and I agree with you >>> this is a great solution for a videographer.
I also work between a laptop and a PC so having a central repository for all my files makes it so much easier than confusing myself with duplicated files. This sounds awesome and it seems like just what I need since I filled up my current 1TB external HD today!
Jessica, the recent anniversary photo shoot on your blog for that adorable couple is so cute–and I completely love her dress, random side note.
I think you might like this option because you can expand the storage or switch out the drives inside the box. So, for some reason I never clicked on the pin where that image came from, and I have to say I am totally impressed with you and those beautiful curls!
WD is trying to make personal storage easy and this product is aimed at first time NAS users.
You can also enabled auto update of the firmware and opt into a WD product improvement program if you so desire. Some users that plan on traveling with the My Cloud EX2 Ultra might want to download and install WD Sync software on their laptop computer to allow that system to link with the My Cloud when you are away from the network. These documents should be kept in your Vital File and a loved one should have access to them in an emergency, so don't forget to write your letter of instruction. This file was updated on August 28th, 2012 to be more consistent with my book in the works. This tax preparation checklist will help you collect the records you need to complete your tax returns.

The perfect spot for your Vital File or Important File in your home filing system will be chaos-free, secure and relatively easy to access. A total eclipse of the Sun has not been seen in the continental USA for nearly two generations. Although people may opt for the longer durations in eastern regions of the USA, poorer weather prospects here suggest going west. Prudence may suggest observing from regions of good weather prospects with shorter durations than locations with longer durations that have higher probabilities of not seeing the eclipse at all.
Currently maximum total eclipse durations are declining with the 2009 July eclipse longest of the 21st Century. Finally, maximum duration of a total solar eclipse occurs only on the center line of the eclipse path about mid-way between its ends. Read about the Eclipse at Madras, Oregon including circumstance of the eclipse in Part  4. If you are getting a cell phone, determine if your market is local or if you will be doing a lot of long distance.
If you have smart phones and need shared calendars and address books, you can use Google Mail, Google Apps or Microsoft Office 365 very economically.
Virtual hugs to WD for sponsoring an upgrade to my creative life by letting me try the private cloud with My Cloud EX2. Okay, you got me, yes, I do make stuff up all the time when it comes to tech, but this is real.
In fact, I had such a service for many years that backed up most of my files to their servers. You have client projects and books you’re writing and other deadlines, just like I do. You certainly can and should back up and organize documents as you go, but this daily routine makes for a great double check.

I’ve had one for years and the extra work it requires means I skip my backups at times.
Plus, I’ve always thought one of the most important benefits of remote storage was the security of having all your stuff far away, in case of fire or flood or some other immediate local disaster that could permanently destroy your backup.
Your blog is just about my favorite blog these days, and I’ve just joined your G+ Community. I have a best friend and former business partner who dropped a Starbucks drink all over her computer and a huge project we were woking on. I have suffered through lapbook disasters myself so I know the pain of losing valuable content. I didn’t know you could have your own cloud and now, just like when you showed me Photoshop, WordPress, and Mac computers so many years ago, I have to have my own. I might sound very dumb but, except or the fact that it your computer connects to it through wifi rather than a cable… how exactly is it different from an external hard drive. Just last week I was sitting at a cafe with friends, about 2 hours from my home and pulling up photos from my WD back at home using my iphone’s WD app.
Do you find that it’s much simpler than trying to share large files through the other programs available? My business partner and I share some BIG files and I would hate to be having to use one of the paid services. Being able to sit in a cafe with wifi and access those files totally changes the way I work and my ability to service my clients. Please, guide how to set my private cloud and my cloud EX2.I would like to participate in conversation to get updated because my desk top and emails , it seems, have been hacked and often I have mislead by sites to whom I have never prescribed. Starting out at home can be very difficult but with the right resources it can be done properly. I have had that “end of work day” routine posted up on my bulletin board for months, and it has revolutionized my mornings!
If I ever have any questions about blogging or business or consulting, your site is the first place I check.
We did that and found that it takes us to the above site. The 3-step instructions that are supposed to get you started are really getting you setup for off site cloud storage. If you want to be able to access your files from outside your home you must fill in this information as you need that account to login remotely.
No drive letters are mapped at this point, so if you wanted to map drive letters you need to restart your PC and then you can right click the EX2 Ultra under storage devices and map a drive letter for it. This will allow you to synchronize your files with the drive while locally or remotely using that computer. The stress of trying to collect all the details of your life or the life of a loved one during difficult times can greatly compound the challenges for a family. A seven minute duration will not happen again until 2150 June (7m14s) while a total eclipse with a duration near maximum is nearly two centuries in the future.
Not until 2078 will total eclipse durations begin to increase when Saros cycle 139 begins to bring eclipses of longer and longer durations.
This position may often be difficult to access as it was, for example, during the 2012 November Australia eclipse.
It is very important to have the right technology in place in order to conduct business in a timely, efficient and economical manner. Be sure to properly secure the routers so no one outside your organization can be on your network. In order to post comments, please make sure JavaScript and Cookies are enabled, and reload the page. However, I was disappointed to find out that if something happened to my computer (like the soy chai latte that happened to my best friend’s MacBook Pro), it could take a few days to get my files to me. So whereas you can still use a free account (with less space) with other cloud storage places for in-process files and collaborations, you can likely back up all of your stuff to your own cloud. All of my favorite nerd things are named with both letters and numbers, so it’s simple for me to remember the EX2. What’s something you can add to your daily routine to keep your business safe + organized? The only backups she had were remote and getting a copy of all of that stuff took too long. Still, after all this time, I can’t believe how cool the Interwebs is to connect people who think alike and can benefit from each other.
Perhaps a smaller, free backup of your most important docs and current projects, and then a large backup of every single thing on your computer. I also have set up a folder that my business partner on the other side of the world has access to so we can share working files. I think that’s been the biggest difference for me (the sharing of super large files). He’s just done a whole lot of videos for an online course he is running so some of these files are huge. And to be honest, I didn’t think the My Cloud was that much more expensive than other hard drives. And, I can easily see how as a photographer with such high-quality images, you can run through a 1TB HD pretty easily. It’s all about being as efficient as possible, manage this and you will do well, thank you and look forward to more content. I realized that all of my monthly fees were starting to rack up a little higher than I’d like. This is something you’ll want to enable if you want to use the WD My Cloud mobile app on your iOS or Android smartphone and tablet.

This is an added convenience to keep your files current and in line with what is on the computer automatically, without the need to copy or backup your data otherwise on that particular system.

Although eclipse durations have their maximum values along points on the central line, these durations diminish with increasing distance from the central line. Almost half are approximately three minutes or less (as will be with the 2017 August eclipse).
This will not happen until the remarkable 2186 July total eclipse (7m29s), the longest duration of totality during the years -2000 to +4000.
For this eclipse, maximum duration was 4m02s over the central Pacific Ocean and not the Australian mainland. If you have more than one person using the printer, a network enabled printer is your best bet. If my almond milk chocolate chai latte happens to my computer, I can get all my backed-up files moments later (from the My Cloud EX2) on a different device. We (well, actually mostly she) had to recreate everything while I worked on other aspects of the project.
I have 4 TB of space (with expansion possibilities) so it really doesn’t matter that I have bad digital habits. Having a folder that we can easily access, that can take that format and upload it quick has been a dream. The first thing that you need to do is to power up the My Cloud EX2 and connect it to your network.
The WD My Cloud mobile app is available for download for free from the Apple App Store and Google Play if you go ahead and setup a My Cloud Acount. I did it because I knew simplifying, getting organized and taking care of responsibilities would help me find freedom and peace-of-mind. Annular eclipses occur when the Moon's disk is not large enough to hide the entire solar disk at maximum eclipse. Unfortunately, this long duration will take place about 400 mi (640 km) east of South America in the Atlantic Ocean, 500 mi (800 km) north of the equator. Fortunately, greatest duration for the 2017 August eclipse does occur over the mainland USA. If you don’t need colour, monochrome (black and white) printers are more economical to operate.
But first, I’m super happy EX2 (as I call him for short) fit well with all the black and gold on my desk. And below is something else for you to tweet, if you’ll be switching to the private cloud with me.
I don’t feel confused or overwhelmed the next day and I generally feel good when I stop work for the day. To do this you simply give it power and plug it into your wired network, which most likely means plugging it into your wireless router. Totality is a two minute eclipse on the West Coast with the east coast having 34 seconds more. Thus, western location may again have an advantage since summer storms tend to build during afternoon hours, a common occurrence during summer months. The duration of totality decreases slowly at first with the distance from the central line of totality then increases rapidly. Although much less spectacular than total solar eclipses, central durations are often much longer. Because here’s the thing, I try to limit the things I take on for a monthly fee as a creative business owner.
Hugging the device that let me set up my own cloud and break the chains on monthly backup + file storage fees is not odd. So I can work like a slob all day, then at the end I get it all organized and pretty according to that list, and BAM my mornings are fantastic and much more productive!
Have your personal experiences given you any insights you could share with others regarding keeping vital documents? The approximate range in altitude of the Sun in degrees during the eclipse is also shown for both west and east regions.
For example, at a distance of 60% away from the central line to the edge of totality, the duration is still 80% of maximum. Even if the fractional distance from the central line is one half, the loss in duration is only about 15%.
Our income is irregular, so it can be hard to estimate how much we’ll make each month.
I'm here to help you make peace with your papers, so you can enjoy all the best life has to offer.
Hence, observers usually do not need to be exactly on the central line to experience most of the duration of totality.
