How do I enable OSx Journaled Encryption on my new WD 8TB My Cloud Home drive?


#1

Could anyone provide step by step guidance on how to enable OSX Journaled Encryption on my new hard drive.

I understand (I believe) reading through the online FAQs that this may have some limitations on the ability to access data externally and syncing… I’m great with that, provided the hard drive continues to work well.

The challenge I’m running into is that my new drive is not showing up as a device in Disk Utility.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

It won’t. The My Cloud Home is a NAS. NASes don’t show up in Disk Utility.

You also cannot enable Journaling on a NAS.

What exactly are you trying to do?
