Yes, even USB powered hard drives will work when connected to the CloudGate Square.

    I currently run a PC with a solid state drive and an external Drobo for my data.
    I mainly use MS Office
    I do photo editing (Nikon Capture NX software)
    I have 2 remote offices & use Dropbox for file sharing
    is CouldGate a suitable option to consider as I need to upgrade my hardware

      Hi Deon,

      The CloudGate Square (Windows version) is probably better suited to your needs. The system will handle photo editing depending on how in depth your editing requirements are. If you would like to discuss further please email so one of our technical guys and look into this for you.

      iTunes will run on the Windows version of CloudGate but is not available on the Android system.

    oh yes
    I have an iPhone 6 & an iPad and several other handheld devices (GPS loggers etc)
    can i run my iTunes account on your system & sync my iPhone with it and outlook?

    How does one download and save to an external hard drive so as not to fill the on board memory

      Hi Steven,

      There is no place to change the download location, however once downloaded you can use the Antek File Explorer to move the items to an external source (flash drive, hard drive, SD card)
