Mainly I bought it to use as a standalone Plex/DLNA server
Right now I’m very confused about where all the folders are. I’ve managed to map the MyCloud drive onto File Explorer, but it only has one folder “Public”. It works fast like any other drive.
Now, when I go into the web interface, I DON’T see this “Public” folder at all, nor any files I copy to this folder. So what gives? In the web interface, there is a “Family” folder and a “Plex” folder. Likewise, I don’t see these folders in my mapped drive, nor do I see the option map them; only the Public folder is available to map.
So that relates back to my original purpose for buying the MyCloud Home. So fine, I’ll try to use the web interface, but whenever I try to upload files via the web interface, it is 10x as slower than my mapped drive.
I never thought this would be so much of a hassle. Can anybody help me?
Any way to map the Plex folders onto File Explorer, and any way to view the Public folder in the web interface?
Why is the web interface so much slower to upload? Any settings I need to look out for?
Lastly, obviously its all connected via a Gigabit router, all wired. The mapped drive’s speed is as expected. Also maybe related, I read online that supposedly there’s a “local” client interface at “wdmycloud/” but there’s nothing there at all. Neither can I access anything via the device’s assigned IP address. I don’t know if they were only available on older versions or not.
