Relevant to our recently published articles on wifi, home networking and backup strategies are today’s deals on Amazon (here). We’re writing about them today because in our reviews we mention some particular products and if you are quick, you can save some serious money on them. This brief post is organised around the relevant themes we’ve covered in the past.
Windows 10 Backup (link: How to backup a Windows 10 PC; time machine for Windows)
In this article we discuss backup strategies for Windows 10 using the built in File History software. We cover off how you can use a USB hard drive, or if you are on a home wifi network you can use a network backup storage. We recommended the WD My Cloud devices and they are currently discounted:
WD 8TB My Cloud EX2 Network Attached Storage – This is a massive storage device, with 8TB of space to backup even the largest of PCs. If you get to this deal soon you can save $137 off Amazon’s usual price. Click here for the deal.
WD 12TB My Cloud Mirror Personal Network Attached Storage – The mirror part of the name is the key with this version of the My Cloud. This is for the seriously backup conscious as it has two internal hard drives meaning that, if one fails, your data is still stored on the other one. Click here for the deal.
Home Networking & Wifi (link: Answered: How do I extend the range of my home wifi?)
In this article we discuss the options for extending the range of your home wifi network, coming to the conclusion that a powerline device is the best route in most circumstances. In the current Amazon deal there are some excellent mark downs, for example, checkout:
D-Link Powerline AV2 2000 Adapter Gigabit Extender Starter Kit – A great powerline starter kit which will extend your wired network across your home power network. Save $50 today, click here for the deal.
