Help. I’ve been struggling with implementing this feature for several months with no resolution. My understanding is I should be able to send share a file on my MyBook Live with someone by sending them a link. I have tried using WD2Go Pro on my Android phone to generate a link which looks like this " https://MyBookLive.devicexxxxxx.wd2go.com:443/api/1.0/rest/file_contents…" However when the recipient clicks on this link they get a warning that they are being redirected to another website “WD.com” and the recipient is warned not to proceed as this could be a phishing scheme. I’ll never be able to convince the recipient to ignore the dire warning from their antivirus software and go ahead and click the link I sent them.
For MyBook Live to be a viable alternative for a personal cloud I need to be able to share files on the MyBook Live hard drive with other people.
Is this working for anyone? Or does “share files as a link” mean something else in the WD world?
Other than this one shortcoming, the MyBook Live is meeting my needs as a personal cloud where there are no ongoing subscription costs and I know where the data resides.
