My Cloud 3 TB version
This is a horrible product. I wanted it for storage backup and a simple cloud service for when I’m away from home and want to stream movies or music or share a picture. I can’t even do that half of the time.
At least once a week I have to hard reset the box. Meaning pull the power then plugging it back in. The symptoms when I have to do it is no access either remotely or locally (on same network). I have it connected to a APC UPS 900VA backup so it’s getting clean power.
Just now I had to reset it because I had no remote connection but I had local connection. uPnP is enabled on my router.
This drive is SLOW. Not sure why there is a USB 3.0 port because I don’t think it can keep up with 3.0 speeds. Yes I have a gigabit network and it is connected at gigabit speed.
I can’t even map the public share drive on my computer. Win 7 Ult 64bit. When I go to my network connections, I find WD MyCloud, find the public folder, right click it and my explorer crashes. Every single time. Rebooting the computer doesn’t help.
This product fails so much. I’m so close to returning it and trying out the Seagate Central cloud product. It has to be better than this thing.
