USB Port Question for LinkStation Mini
« on: December 06, 2020, 04:20:09 pm »
LinkStation Mini 1.0 TB LS-WS1.0TGL/R1WH

This unit has one USB port on the rear.  Can a USB hub ( BELKIN F5U304-WHT USB 2.0 Plus Hub ) be attached to the unit to allow the read and write of portable USB drives. ( PNY 8GB (4GB x 2) Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable or larger) ??

 

We need an inexpensive way to allow off site storage of certain data.  If the above is possible, then we could swap the Portable USB drives as needed to move some data off site for storage.

 

If this setup will not work, our next thoughts would be a single USB drive (Seagate ST902504EXA101-RK 250GB) attached to the NAS to allow the read and write, then it could be removed after a weekly backup.
 

Any thoughts??
