Upgrade to your own personal Cloud myUSBcloud.



Your Personal

NAS and Cloud Server

Your files are stored securely at home
Use your NAS to backup files and stream Videos, Music and Photos.
Traditional Cloud services store your files on their servers anywhere in any country.
myUSBcloud leaves your files at Home, on your own hard drive, allowing you to have safe and secure access to them.

Keep your Videos, Music, Photos, and Files safe at Home and share and/or stream them to your Media Player, PC, Mac, Phone or Tablet when you need them.

When you have downloaded and extracted the ZIP file to an SD card, insert it into your Raspberry Pi; connect a network cable and plug in a USB drive and turn on your Raspberry PI. 


After a few minutes the Raspberry Pi will show up on your home network as MUD

(My Usb Drive).  You can then create directories and save files to it using your current file explorer.  Show me how



By upgrading to myUSBcloud all you files will also be accessible on your own private page on

Documents are not stored on this site.

They are transferred from the security of your USB drive at home to your PC, Mac, Phone or Tablet when you request a download.


There are many examples online of how to setup a Raspberry Pi as a Network Attached Device (NAS) and that’s great if you want to spend the time doing all the work yourself.

We wanted to create was an image to download and copy to an SD card that would “just work” without making any changes.  So we did all the hard work for you and created an image for the you to
download and use.


We also wanted to provide you with a Cloud storage solution where you know where your Files and Data are stored!
