Keep your Videos, Music, Photos, and Files safe at Home and transfer them to your PC, Mac, Phone or Tablet when you need them.
HOW IT WORKS
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
