How to install rclone "app" on Mycloud Mirror Gen2 ? (to replace dropbox)

So I want to install rclone to replace the provided Dropbox app that doesn’t work on large files.

But I can’t install using apt-get over ssh because apt-get isn’t available.

I’m not up for recompiling a kernel or whatnot, that’s getting beyond my linux knowledge…

SO I’m trying to install rclone as a 3rd-party app using the “install an app manually” link that’s in the gui interface on the Apps screen.

But that still isn’t working… I’ve downloaded what I think is the right binary file from but it keeps saying “can’t install app” when I try to add it via the gui.

Was this approach ever going to work?

Can anyone point me in the right direction?


I have never tried this. Lets see if another user has tried and can share some ideas with us.

Thanks Hamlet - desperately trying to find a solution to sync the box with DropBox and rclone looks promising but I still can’t figure out how to install it directly on the WD :frowning:

If anyone knows that would be ace!

find rclone ARMv7 download link.
this example is for

ssh into your mycloud and run these commands
if on Windows 10
C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /k ssh -oHostKeyAlgorithms=+ssh-dss root@ yourwdmycloudaddresss

find your program install folder might look like this… /mnt/HD/HD_a2/Nas_Prog/

run these commands

cd /mnt/HD/HD_a2/Nas_Prog/

wget --no-check-certificate



ln -s /mnt/HD/HD_a2/Nas_Prog/rclone-v1.53.2-linux-arm-v7/rclone 

then you can use
rclone config
