I recently bought a My Cloud Home and I want to access it as a network drive on my Android tablet. It isn’t obvious what the IP address is but after finding it out from my router. I still can’t access any files from my Android tablet.

The user manual doesn’t have any information relevant to my question. I can access it using the My Cloud app, however, I want to access it through other apps as a network drive.


Did you use the second link and search the Knowledge Base?

I did. Nothing was relevant.

Please refer to the following article that describes the differences between the Private and Public space on My Cloud Home and how to mount each:

I see. It’s kind of a pointless device then really.
