I have a WD My Cloud 3TB. I’m still using the old firmware (pre My Cloud OS 3 release). The performance is pretty good and I’m happy with it. Having said that, I’m a bit tempted to upgrade to the latest firmware, just because I like to keep everything updated.
What I’d like to know is whether it’s worth upgrading or not? Performance is my number one priority here. I stopped upgrading to the latest v2 firmware because at one point, I read that it was causing a lot of headaches for many users. Currently, my WD Cloud has a few tweaks applied (I found those tweaks on this forum). I can’t remember what they were but one of them was to disable thumbnail caching or something.
If it turns out that the new firmware is simply a revamp of the dashboard interface and not much as changed in terms of performance, then I don’t want to bother. I’ve also read somewhere that some users lost all their files during the upgrade, which is a bit scary to me.
