Ok, so back story - hubby set up the mycloud and is now not interested in helping sort out the issues.
- The first I discovered by accident really. I can see WDMyCloud in Finder on my Mac and this is mostly where I have been accessing stuff from. But it will only log me in as a guest. When I try to log in as Registered User and complete my details, it won’t log me in… so I remain logged in as Guest. Then I realise, even as a guest, I can access EVERYTHING!!
So I go looking for how to lock the folders so they are private or password protected… that is when I discover that perhaps I need to be accessing the WD My Cloud from the dashboard?? I have downloaded an app which doesn’t seem to give me any administrative access to change folder types etc.
So then I try to access WD My Cloud from online (which I assume is what is known as the dashboard??
This is when I discover problem 2.
- Can’t access anything online - tried downloading and installing Java… still nothing works using Chrome or Safari.
To add to this, I am a fairly new Mac user so I am getting easily confused reading other posts because the terminology is all new and I am by no means a whiz at this - I can adequately get through things if they are explained without too much technical mumbo-jumbo.
Hope someone can help please! My main concern is working out how to lock folders so randoms can’t access them!!
