I see I can attach a hard drive via USB. Does it support *portable* external hard drives?

The downloaded user manual seems to imply (pictures) that it works with portable hard drives, but it does not explicitly state so. However, my experience with routers with USB ports (not Apple) is only powered hard drives work as there is not enough power in the router's USB port for a portable hardrive.

    Yes. I have a WD portable drive as a 'cloud' drive and it works just fine. I'm hoping to hook it up with a hub and a second portable drive to allow a backup of the original.
