I just installed my brand new WD My Cloud EX2 Ultra and installed the DropBox-App.
Having a local backup of my drops-folder was the whole point of buying a WD NAS in the first place.
But it doesn’t work!
1.) I installed the app via mycloud web interface. couldn’t connect the app to my DB-account.
2.) after consulting the WD-community-forum I found out that I have to keep my username to “admin”. (WTF??)
3.) I now could connect the app, a dropBox-folder was created within the “Public”-folder (is that where it belongs?)
4.) it doesn’t sync. in the settings panel it says: “sync stopped”. I hit the button “synchronize” but it won’t change it’s status, but flips back to “sync stopped”. On my DropBox-page it doesn’t list the WD NAS under “connected devices”.
Edit eight hours later:
i.) the name of your cycloid account has to be “admin” to be able to connect the DropBox app on the WD NAS with the DropBox account.
ii.) even then I had to re-install the app several times to finally really connect to DropBox.
iii.) it starts to sync. sloooooowwwllyyyyyyyy.
iiii.) it messes up the folder organization. luckily only on the NAS.
iiiii.) it stops sync without any further notice or explanation.
I’ll bring it back to the store. That’s ridiculous. Everywhere I look for a fix I only find the same explanations: it doesn’t work and probably never did and WD doesn’t care.
Look elsewhere for a good solution. This is hopeless.
