Hi. Is there any possibility to have Plex server on this appareil?
I have a Samsung tv that accept multimedia contents only if one drive is connected directly to usb on TV or by the Plex app. But I can't find how to install Plex on this WD my cloud. Thank you for your help.
But i thought it was protected regardless if I had public because of the password???
WARNING----WARNING-----WARNING WD backup is totally screwed up it will not let you restore to a new computer and that is the very Ideal of what a backup is for don't take my post for it check out a search for WD backup will not restore and WD will not help or fix this problem
Did they change WD my cloud because I heard you can direct connect cable from iPhone??
After backup when I delete a file from my computer which I don't want any more, it doesn't delete from the WD backup when I backup it afterwards. I don't want the deleted file in my backup and I want my external hard drive to sync with my computer automatically because manually selecting and deleting a file from the back also is very irritating. How can I do it?
Os5 update Western digital October 2020 can you make a vid on the update and what you think of the new operating system thank you
I give up searching for a wireless external hard drive. After just watching this video for 36 seconds, I gave up. "It has to be wired to your network...." Yes, if that was just that easy. What about us with mobile internet, or what it is called. The broadband solutions you can buy from telephone companies, where you put a sim card into a small portable router, and have a monthly limitation of so and so many gigabytes depending on which package you bought. How on earth are we supposed to use this WD-cloud-thing? No, not possible.
Why can't someone make an external hard drive that can be used wirelessly, without any router? It should be really easy. Printers work like that today, they show up in the list of available networks, and you connect to it. Easy as that. But external hard drives, no, I have not found a single one out there with a usable wireless solution, or bluetooth or whatever other than cables attached to your computer or router.
If I buy one of the old fashioned cable wired external hard drives, how on earth am I supposed to use the program Time Machine for my Macbook to automatically backup every hour? It is not possible. I have a laptop, not a stationary. So no, that is not an option at all to have that clumpy mess hanging down from my Macbook 24/7, day out and day in.
I wish companies producing external hard drives could move away from their 1970's technology and into the modern 2020's.
We watch all your ads because you ROCK! ✨☕️✨👽👋🇨🇦🤣the last ad was 4 minutes long,,,so now you have to make us a cat video since we are behind on our posts. CFC66 ✨👽🐱🐯🦁✨
can it backup data to my Dropbox on daily/nightly basis as well? thanks
Brother can you tell me how to configure it will dvr
Does this work with Time Machine backups?
i lost everything on this damn thing because it fell sideways
I purchased this back in 14 and just about 4 weeks ago i LOST access to the WD Drive anytime i try to access it from OUTSIDE my home network ...
Cellular data or outside WiFi i can't get to it from any phone or laptop ...
I can ONLY access it from my home network ...
I can't find the app works on my mac, looks like it's removed by WD, any alternatives?
Man, thank you for this video, however it goes all over the place, it certainly have some content but it is not organized, it is not an step by step video
Long Term Review:
If you're thinking about buying any of the WD MyCloud products I'd recommend just deleting all of your important data now and forgo buying a MyCloud to save you the time and money up front. These are unequivocally the worst designed Home-NAS boxes on the market. They work well for the first year or so, but once they go through regular use (normal copy/paste data over and over) the file system starts to fall to pieces. When they start to fail, and believe me they do, about 1 in 5 (look it up the internet is full of thousands and thousands of horror stories) there is no way to recover your data because of the proprietary file system and dashboard Western Digital uses. I'm surprised there hasn't been a class action lawsuit yet.
I have couple of those drives and I can not figure out how to get rid of public share.
anybody on the same network can store files on this drive. I consider this a security problem.
someone very easily can simply put trash on this share and use all the usable space.
I would like to make it exclusive, contacted wd and they told me it can not be done. Once the drive is connected to the network anybody can use it locally
Lon mine has no power and has no reset
Hi lon the mycloud android app just updated the eula now there is no accept button for tsandcs cannot access drive from my phone please help
Thanks bud , sold me , i was thinking of buying the other version but nope the HOME VERSION would best suit me better , thanks again.
The Cloud is optional. Many people, like me, just buy these because they are cheap and for redundency and dont want thier data stored on a cloud server. The reason its quiet is because the Myclouds use WD Red, actual network storage vs. WD black in your other portable. The Drives in these things cost more seperately than you paid for the entire unit, one of the reasons people buy these just to remove the drives.
The thick cat 5 is shielded with metal foil and copper braid. The reason for that type of manufactured Cat 5 is because a Home Cloud is likely to be moved often so manufacturers make Cat 5 with both metal (aluminum) foil and copper braid to prevent cracking in the foil which would reduce its EMV capability. The shielding isnt there in Cat cable to prevent interference in the drive, but to prevent the drive cable from leaking and causing interference with other equipment. Its only Cat 5 but still a qualility cable to prevent cracking from a device a lot of people will likely move around a lot. I bought one of these and it arrived from Newegg today. This is my fourth One, the first one I bought about 6 or 7 years ago. I have not had very good luck with these. The other three only lasted months before they died, giving WD one more try. My 5 and 6 year old Seagates and Toshiba are still running strong, hopefully this WD will last longer than the others.
Can you just browse it from normal file explorer on windows or android? .. partition it? .. work with just connecting to the router without internet connection
Google is very unreliable, they shut down every service they start and take the ground away from under our foot all the time. So I do not use much google services at all.
what is ibby?
Can I upload on this from anywhere in the world?
Is it a kind of server ?
SERIOURLY STAY AWAY FROM THIS PRODUCT!!!! YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR DATA AND THE SUPPORT FROM WD IS THE WORST!!!!
how do i know how many terabytes i need?
what about now ranjit ji how is it working Cloud Home good or bad
From my experience using it on mobile, it does not back up contacts, sms, apps, music files, or any other files (excluding pictures & videos) directly on the device.
funny pronounce, you sounds baggedup instead back up? work on that first
Wanted to know if backup can happen on any wifi network and does device needs to be in same wifi network to configure
This device has become an essential accessory now that Google photos has backtracked on its promise of free uploads / backup and is going to charge from June this year.
How to share this with family, as Google photos will not be free by 2021 June or July even on high quality
Who are here to check the review after hearing Google Photos Free storage plan is closing?
You said it can be set up for multiple users to have their own private space.
Can in be configured so I as parent have full access, but each of my kids get their space private from each other, but not from me?
Can we use as a media server, stream videos HD, 4K ?
I am in Mumbai, and this cloud storage in Kolkata.., upload data possible?
I am looking one for my LG TV. Is it possible to connect this to a WiFi enabled TV? How easy is it
I hv a question..

1. Suppose, If i configure this device at Dubai and later can i access this cloud from India?.what are the possibilities?. Can you pls explain.
2.which is the best cloud machine?.
Can I access this storage from outside? I mean, suppose I install this storage in my room in Dubai, can I access this storage from India?
Bro any service charge
Hi GR, hope this will be able to connect with Mi home security cameras? Thanks
If there is a fire, theft or any natural calamities then all ur data is gone. Hence better to use onedrive, dropbox etc from long term prospective.
I sent mine back didnt do anything like the older nas version
Can anyone help me please. If I store an important file in my cloud home and then factory reset my pc, am i guaranteed to get those files back from the cloud home? Thank you
Rev you can plug is a ssd and your good to go over wifi or usb 3.0
SERIOURLY STAY AWAY FROM THIS PRODUCT!!!! YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR DATA AND THE SUPPORT FROM WD IS THE WORST!!!!
Please don't take this the wrong way but please stop referring to things as cat5.... First of all that ethernet cable you're using must be at least cat5e minimum, large difference and the ports are not called cat5 either they're called RJ45 sockets for ethernet connections. :)
This is not a review!
.much cheaper variant 8 tb https://amzn.to/34dqm9J
Beware! This drive requires it be wired to a wifi router, the router connect to internet, and wifi active. You cannot wire it via ethernet either directly to a computer or via a LAN to control it or access data. So, no wifi and/or internet = no access to your data. AND even worse ... any search function is limited ONLY to folders - NOT the files in the folders. Thus it stores lots of files you cannot find by name, size, type or date etc. Idiotic!
As of today, mine won't even switch on!
Sort your sound out
Thank you very much for saving me ! Very disappointed with WD software and instructions..
Can my dad see my backed up pictures if we have a my cloud home?
WD have not made it very clear that the devie is NOT a NAS.
From their website
"Unlike a NAS, it's a simple centralized solution to back up your photos, videos and files, and have it stored in one place. With the My Cloud Home app, you can access, upload and share your content from anywhere with an internet connection."
I've just bought one second hand. They claimed it had never been used - but there was already an account set up on it. Not too difficult to rest - but the setup seems nothing like I expect a NAS device to be. Still looking to find how to configure a static IP address on it. Seems you cannot set a staic IP.
This is the first ever "NAS" that I have come accross that does not allow static IP. Also the WD App is not supported on Android 4.4.2. Initial impressions are very poor for a claimed NAS device. Seems like too much emphasis on mobile access and they've forgotten the LAN aspects. Synology all the way for NAS devices for me.
At least I get a "new" 6TB disk for £80. The software is miles from what I would expect a proper NAS to be capable of. Obviously Synology have "spoiled" me. In "Dragons Den" terms - If this is the future of WD NAS's - then I'm out.
Can device be accessed directly as a network drive so it can be mapped in windows. does it have to use the wd software. ie \\192.168.x.x "not cloud"
Just a heads up to anyone who stumbles across this video. The MyCloud HOME does NOT work over a LAN. It only works through the web. If you have no internet, the drive is useless.
Catastrophic product! User interface is completely counter intuitive, it is the slow to the point it is unusable on wifi, and you cannot connect it directly to your computer unless you are an IT engineer! This product is a real piece of junk. I paid a lot of money and now it sits in the bottom of my drawer. Best advice is to stay away
Can I stream from this device to my phone though WIFI but wiht no internet? I have it but I dont know to it work entirely
Should have watched this first... I went thru the exact same frustrating process... now using it with AOEMEI backupper software but not happy!
WARNING: SD. WILL NOT GIVE YOU THE TIME OF THE DAY IF YOUR MYCLOUD DRIVE DIES ON YOU. THEY WILL REFER YOU TO A SERVICE THAT CHARGES $700 TO RECOVER YOUR DATA.
THE DATA IS ENCODED IN LINUX AND ONE CANNOT COPY IT TO ANOTHER DRIVE. IN MY CASE THE POWER SUPPLY DIED. THEY REFUSED TO SELL ME THE FAILED PART,! I STRONGLY RECOMMEND AGAINST BUYIN MYCLOUD!!!
