    Rated 2.7 out of 5�by 6 reviewers.
    Rated 2 out of 5�by WD MyCloud My goal was to move my photos, which I manage with Picasa, and my iTunes music library to this network drive so they could be shared throughout the house, and possibly have the photos available to me anywhere over the Internet. Before spending a lot of time moving files, I tried to set up a backup scheme. Note: I am a very experienced home/engineering user, but not a system administrator who may have been able to set this up quickly. So, I had to learn about mapping directories to drives, research cables, try to figure out the possible uses of the USB port on the drive, troubleshoot possible sharing issues, etc. After about a week of this, in spare time, I realized there was a firmware update. Now the other drives on my network showed up in the WD software, and problem solved. Although, I wish there were frequency options between once a day and once a week. Next: migrate my photos without losing all the edits, labels, etc added over many years. More research: mapping drives, Picasa network software, enormous Picasa databases, configuration files, moving one directory of photos at a time through Picasa, etc. And we are now moving many GBs of data, so every copy of files or change of location and backup takes hours. Finally done after a couple more days. Now let's see if it works from another networked computer. Different operating system. More research. Computer can't see the MyCloud. Now I need to look into sharing privileges and who knows what else. I see that every user of the MyCloud needs to be registered online. Try creating a guest account. The WD service is now down until further notice to fix some issue. I guess my point is that unless you're just doing a simple backup or migrating files that you manage only with Windows Explorer, not Picasa, iTunes, etc., the little details of making this work as a shared network drive can get way beyond the knowledge of the typical home user.

    Rated 3 out of 5�by Expect Technical Help for MAC setup My personal experience is that WD drives prefer to work in the PC world. My Cloud does not act like a normal backup hard drive and can not be reformatted to MAC standard without first loading the WD for MAC software. The My Cloud software for MAC got stuck in the Catch 22 world of "You can't load the software until you first update the software but you can't update until after the software is loaded." A call to tech support got helpful results though the process took about an hour while they manipulated my computer remotely to force the software update and then load the software. Without their help I would have been dead in the water. Transferring files into My Cloud was not seamless either. The MAC operating system or File Vault settings may have been fighting with the WD software. I was embarrassed the next day when intending to click on a presentation that was resident on my desktop. All movie and Powerpoint type "active" desktop links were overlaid with the My Cloud startup graphic as if I wanted to download the Cloud software again. I could not open any of my presentations and even links within IMovie itself we're not functioning. I elected to uninstall the My Cloud software and all my presentations came back. I did not want to go through hours with tech support again to figure out what was wrong. I expect the WD would work fine in the PC world. Better to purchase a Cloud drive specifically formatted for the MAC world from the getgo. July 1, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5�by Performing exactly as we expected. Terrific product and simple to set up. March 9, 2015
    Rated 1 out of 5�by Worse purchase ever This product is unbelievably slow and a complete waste of time to try improving this. One of the worse experiences with a product. The concept is great but only if it worked as advertised. I have the latest firmware and updated to a gigabit router and nothing improved. It takes 2-3 minutes sometimes longer just for the dashboard to open on my pc. Transferring files is a nightmare, wired 7 mb top speed and 2 mb wireless. Took me 3 days to transfer 1.5 TB. Did a full restore as suggested by WD support and this took 48 hours. Been on the phone for several hours at a time with WD support staff and in the end I am returning this product for a replacement the second time around. This is there suggestion after exhausting all workarounds. My regret is that 30 days has passed and I am unable to return this paper weight. September 14, 2014
