Introducing CloudBox

The LaCie CloudBox keeps you connected to your world. All your music, movies, photos, and more, accessible on all your devices, and easily shareable with your family and friends.


Keep all the files spread across your home computers in one place. Mom's photos, dad's music, the kids' movies - all on the LaCie CloudBox.

Share With Family

File sharing at home has never been so easy. Store files in the Family folder for shared family access, or create Private folders for personal or limited access to private files.

  • The Family Folder: Share photos, videos, music, and other content with anyone in the home simply by dropping the files into the pre-created Family folder on the LaCie Cloudbox.
  • Private Folders: Keep financial documents and other important data private by creating your own Private folder linked to your user account. Even grant access to other users.

Share With Friends

Sharing happens outside the home, too. Send friends and relatives files with secure download links or by sharing folders in the cloud.

  • Secure Download Links: Send a secure download link to share photos with relatives and out-of-town friends without the vulnerability and size limits of sending them via email.
  • Desktop & Mobile Apps: Grant access to folders stored in your cloud. All your friends and family need to do is download the desktop or mobile app.

Connect At Home

Enjoy your music, photos, and files from any screen or network-connected device in the house.

  • Any Mac® or PC: Access the photo album you created on the PC in the den from your laptop at the kitchen table. Once files are moved over to the LaCie CloudBox, they go where you go.
  • Network-Connected TVs: Browse your digital movie library from the best seat in the house - the couch in your living room. The LaCie CloudBox connects to network-connected TVs, and other devices such as the Playstation®3 and Xbox 360®.
  • iTunes®: Save space on your computer's hard drive and stream your music library stored on the LaCie CloudBox directly from iTunes on your Mac or PC.

Connect On-The-Go

With the LaCie CloudBox, your music, movies, photos, and other documents go where you go. All you need is a device that's connected to the web.

  • Any Mac® or PC: You may be away from your home, but you can still access contents from your LaCie CloudBox from an easy-to-use desktop application - from any PC or Mac connected to the web.
  • Smart Phone or Tablet: Download the mobile app to access and enjoy all your music, movies, photos and more directly from iPhone®. Android® users have the same access via a web browser.


Automatically protect your data at home from accidental loss. Even files on your laptop are safe on-the-go.

  • At Home: Set up your Mac or PC to automatically back up files to the LaCie CloudBox using Time Machine™ or LaCie Backup Assistant.
  • On-The-Go: The LaCie CloudBox comes with 10GB of Wuala Secure Cloud Storage to back up your laptop while on the go. Even back up data stored on your LaCie CloudBox onto the Wuala cloud for easy, anywhere access.

5* Works great!
Reviewed by Gabrielle on 28/04/2013
For me, the best thing about the Cloudbox is that it allows remote and local access to files and it uses much less power than a regular computer. I've been using an old PC as a media storage, but upgrading to this device was the best move ever. It takes up so much less space, and it's much quieter, too! 1TB is a lot of space for movies and music.
5* excellent product

Works great for backups, streaming and file sharing. The user interface is easy, and simple to access across a wide range of devices, no matter what the operating system.
5* Well worth the money

My buddy next door came over to check out my Cloudbox, and he was quite ready to knock it in favor of his DIY solution, but boy, was he surprised.. Apparently, the Cloudbox is much faster over the network than his setup, and has capabilities, such as accessing files from anywhere that he hasn't figured out how to implement.. Anyway, I'm really happy with my Cloudbox. It's a well thought out product overall.
5* Easy to setup and works great
Reviewed by anonymous on 23/01/2014
I tried using some of the roll-your-own cloud and streaming solutions out there, and after a while, it seemed I had signed up for a second job. The CloudBox took almost no time to set up and the software that it comes with is really easy to use, and it works the way it's supposed to. No more roll-your-own for me!
5* Just what I needed
Reviewed by Brayden Morris on 28/07/2014
I've been using a media home server in the past, but the power bills turned out to be particularly nasty, because it was basically running 24/7. After thinking about it and calculating how much it was going to cost me over a few years (eek!), I went out and bought one of these units instead, and set it up to go into hibernation overnight. I wish I had done it sooner.
5* Excellent!!
Reviewed by Kaitlin on 25/02/2013
Very nice product. I've really enjoyed using it so far. Not one glitch, easy to setup, easy to use. Nice features, and great performance. What else can I ask for?
5* Everything I wanted
Reviewed by Kelly on 09/04/2013
As far as a NAS drive goes, this is one of the best I've had. Not only does it serve as a network media hub, it can also be the target backup device for all the computers and mobile devices in the family. The drive can even be setup as its own offsite clone, and for the price this is certainly feasible now.
5* awesome drive
Reviewed by Frederick on 17/07/2013
I was looking for a safe solution for my file and media storage and this NAS drive fitted the bill perfectly. It's easy to use and easy to administer. It's even accessible via a smartphone - I can stream music from the drive from anywhere (my data plan is really good). Don't need to copy albums across anymore or worry about running out of memory. I love it!
5* wonderful product
Reviewed by Robby E on 15/11/2013
I had no trouble setting up this drive. It is now the main storage for all of our household computers and gadgets. Absolutely marvellous bit of hardware and software.
5* good product
Reviewed by Kye on 29/05/2013
I've been using this drive for my media library storage and also for backup with Time Machine. It works well, and it was easy to install. No complaints thus far.
