After doing some reading on this forum, I’ve come to conclusion that the MyBook I purchased will not work with the MyCloud because of incompatibilities. Besides purchasing another MyCloud (3TB), is there anything else that I can use for Safepoints/Backups?
I’am using an external hard drive (a 3TB Seagates)
The only thing that is goign bad is that since I updated my WDMyCloud to the v4 software, all the backups fail…
I’m pretty sure itsnt the hard drive, I formatted it again.
Well - all this incompatability is not acceptable from my perspective. so in the past, another manufacturer’s external hard drive will work but not their own WD? Ridiculous.
The WD My Cloud device supports the following formats for externally attached USB drives:
NTFS (read and write capability)
Linux Ext2, Ext3/Ext4
