I love your hard drives and have been a customer for a very long time. With that faith I bought WDMyCloud 3TB drive.
What a big mistake. I am utterly disappointed with the hardware and the software for managing the files. First, I am almost sitting next to my router so wireless txfer rate is very high. WDMycloud is connected to the router and have a 2TB USB drive as well. List of issues that is driving me nuts… ve
File manager WDMycloudApp is completely bogus. It does not provide feedback on the copy progress. I have no clue when it will end. Many times for big directory transfers it says complete, but when I check the files many of them got missed out with out indicating any sort of errors ??? I lost faith completely to count on this app to take care of my business.
Copying files over the wifi is extremely slow and I do not have time to baby sit the **bleep** thing for hours to complete even for 2 or 3 GB file transfers???
Txfer between the connected USB to the WDMycloud device takes for ever. I thought this should be lightning fast ???
List can go on and on for ever. From the app I cant even say what is the size of a Directory ??? Come on . How do I know whether a high level directory is copied correctly??? Individual file sizes are the only one displayed. Entire directory structure comes on the left side of the panel. Only the leaf files are seen on the right panel ???
I do not see that I can use this product any more. It is going to be in the recycled bin soon. Is there a way to get back the money from WD? It has been more than 2 or 3 months now.
Are there any workarounds or tricks to make this work better?. I know SSH exists and come on, for this I could have bought a linux machine and I know that work a lot better than this. I was so excited when WD announced this product and told many of my friends to buy this as well.
