R7000 using USB readyshare for backups

I have a WD 8T external drive plugged into the router USB port. All pc's can see the drive through readyshare. Can you safely use the drive through ready share to backup the pc's??  All pcs and tablets can read from the drive and play media files. I am not using the drive to send outside my household lan setup.  Thanks for any insight

ReadyShare is a part of your LAN. It shows up in the Network in Windows. Unless you have done something to make these drives available on the internet, no one out there is going to be able to access your files.

What's the question?

 

If the PCs can see the USB drive you can certainly backup to them. Just use software of your choice.

Re: R7000 using USB readyshare for backups

Sorry I was not clear. Safely is the question. When trying to backup PC get message that not safe to backup to internet destinations. When reading through easy share it looks like the basic selection would limit access to the saved data, but not completely sure this is the case. Since easyshare appears to be outside the household LAN, that is what the concern is.
