I own both types and like them both. However I find the Mycloud home to be quit noisy.
How dare you try to answer questions with detailed information! Shouldn’t you just be pointing everyone to http://learn.mycloud.com and going back to sleep!!!???
This is the most shambolic product I have ever bought tbh.
If you are a spendthrift, wanna be ignored by WD team, wanna spend a lot of time to do a simple thing, wanna be an expert on wd community to ask everything (most of them without answer!), wanna a drive with 20mb/s read speed, wanna not be able to play a music from your drive’s app on your phone, wanna have thousands of duplicated backup files from one single photo on your NAS drive, wanna not to be able to manage users drive spaces of your NAS and … you should buy My Cloud Home! Otherwise, you should buy My Cloud.
yep going to strip mine down buy a nas that uses plex and supports plex and advertise in my front window how useless wd is
If WD would give us rights to communicate with My Cloud and My Cloud Home it would be better. Having to “upgrade” a product that cannot even communicate with the original drive (or work similar) isn’t selling your brand or giving to craps about the customers attracted to your products in the first place.
I have the original My cloud and use plex already, to use My cloud Home I either have to to transfer all there and use it off of one drive (which defeats the purpose of buying extra storage) or create 2 servers and flop back and forth every time I want to watch something. A way for the original plex setup to see the files from the new my cloud home or for the “included” plex off the my cloud home to see the files on my Cloud original would help too… so frustrating…
WD READ AND FIX ASAP
Warning: My Cloud Home [single bay] can NOT be backed up to an external drive, via standard WD software/apps.
(Unlike the original My Cloud - this newer HOME version does NOT allow you to create a backup of your ‘My Cloud Home’ drive - at least as of 2018.05.22).
