I guess I wasn’t clear. I can access the files on both the local network as well as remotely, but in order to access the files remotely using Windows Explorer, I must log in to the website first and then select “Open in Explorer”. After that, I’m good to go, but since it is a Win machine, reboots occurr often. After each reboot, I have to log back in to the wdmycloud.com site and press the “Open in Explorer” button. I prefer to have that process automated.
I believe what your looking for is Mapping a network drive.
It depends on what Windows version your using, but on Windows 7, click on the Windows Orb on the task bar, then select “Computer”.
When the Explore window opens, at the top you will see “Map network drive”.
Select it and a new window will open up.
Click Browse, then select expand “WDMyCloud”.
Select the folder you want to mount, then press OK.
When it ask for creditials type them in.
Alternately, you can also open the MyCloud under “Network” as a Network Computer.
