The My Cloud I purchased was working okay since I purcxhased it about five months ago. Then last month, it started dropping the network connectrion regularly. And when it was up, the transfer rate was painfully slow. I installed the firmware that was supposed to solve the problem, but it did not.
So, I thought back to what changed on my computer back at the time that the dropped connections started. Then it came to me… I reinstalled iTunes. iTunes installation comes with a service called Bonjour. No one on earth seems to know what Bonjour is for, but it has caused problems on my computers before. And by reading various forums, I am not alone with my problems with Bonjour. Since I uninstalled the Bonjour service yesterday, and the MyCould unit I have has not dropped its connection so far. The transfer rate has not been great, but it’s okay. You would think that WD would be aware of this. I will keep you posted if there is a change.
