Is it possible to format my WDMyCloud drive and make it a regular drive?
I emailed the support and they said I have a faulty device and contact any data recovery company but it will cost me a lot so I decided to wipe it all out.
BTW, my device is getting an IP address but it’s just temporary since it’s rebooting after 1-2minutes. Never turned to blue LED.
I have an enclosure where I can connect my drive and reformat from my MacBook Pro.
If you want to continue to use a blank or new hard drive in a single bay My Cloud enclosure then one can follow one of the various methods of “unbricking” one can find using the forum search feature (magnifying glass icon upper right). User Fox_Exe has posted directions that work for unbricking or replacing a My Cloud hard drive that many have used successfully.
If you are removing the My Cloud hard drive from the My Cloud enclosure to use as a internal hard drive on a computer or in an external SATA hard drive adapter/enclosure then one can simply partition and format the drive using the computer’s OS tools for formatting a hard drive. Perform an internet search for how to partition and format a hard drive for your computer OS.
You cannot remove the My Cloud hard drive from the enclosure, connect it to a computer and expect to access the My Cloud Dashboard. The My Clodu firmware is designed/configured to run specifically on the hardware contained within the My Cloud enclosure.
