I have a WD 3TB mycloud for my IMAC and it has given me nothing but problems. I have a Gigbit network so speed is not an issue with the network. But i constantly have a problem with the drive dropping offline in the middle of operations i am doing. I have drive sleep turned off and my computer is set not to go to sleep. But for some reason it drops very often it is very frustrating. I would throw it out the window but I have my entire photo album on it(over 100,000 pictures/memories) I have spent over a week trying to move 100 pictures at a time because that is all I can do before it drops offline.
I have done a system only restore on it several times even plugged it directly into the computer. Nothing works.
Time machine backup is even worse. I am constantly having to rebuild the database from scratch almost everyday.
I hoped for something more reliable from a company like this instead I got a piece of SH&$!!!
