I’ve a couple of problems…
Firstly if I use the web interface I see both my My Cloud Home units in “relay” mode, despite uPnP being enabled on my router. If I use the app on an iPad they show as local. My Mac and iPad are both on the same wifi on the same router so why the difference?
The bigger problem is that, I’m trying to copy over about 200Gb of photos - the whole reason for buying the device. It starts with an optimistic 3 hours and then gradually goes up to 38 days, where my patience snaps. There must be a better way to do this?
I am dragging and dropping in Finder from my hard disk to the My Cloud.
I have a gigabit unmanaged switch for both MyCloud Home and they plug into a Gigabit port on the router. In a vain attempt to speed things up, I’ve plugged an ethernet cable into the Mac and into the same gigabit unmanaged switch.
I bought this device to make backing up large amounts of data easy (otherwise what is the point of a 3Tb drive). It is doing anything but make it easy
