I have just purchased my first WD Mycloud (4TB). Main use : one common place for my 2-3 computers store documents, pictures, movies, etc, … backup and possibly streaming (if possible) …?
The feedback from the netshop was not to great, but I thought “how hard can it be…”. Reading the feedback from this forum, I’m not sure if I dare to start :
- I have no experience with linux, I don’t want to use weeks troubleshooting in order to set it up……
- I’ve been struggling enough installing a 2nd harddrive (SSD+HDD) and converting from XP and tweaking w8.1 on my new computer (…and I’m not “all there yet” ….)
So …. would it be possible to make a “sticky note” , with the best tips on how to setup MyCloud (besides referring to the user manual… from which I understand doesn’t “tell it all”)
…or should I just give up and return the item and wait until the Synology box’es drops in price ? (which is not very likely … as they obviously have adopted the business mind set from Apple …)
