I bought this on a recommendation. Of course, the recommendation was my cloud and not my cloud home. Well, shame on me for not checking the difference better. Looking here would make it clear that the product is useless. Yes, useless.
I don’t know where to begin. First of all, I’m not an average user, I was expecting traditional NAS or better. This is not even close to anything and it is not better in any way.
I plugged it in as instructed and installed the mobile app first. OK, after 2 hours I can clearly see that I can’t do anything with it. I can make a backup of my files on Dropbox.
I can literally drag and drop files or copy them on my computer, BUT. I have four laptops at home. All Lenovo YOGA different types, all with Windows 10 with last updates. Application is working on only 1 computer! I encounter problems on 3 other computers. Application installed correctly, it did found drive, but I can’t open it. On 1 computer application works correctly, on other 3 same problem. I don’t have time for this s…
Drive is not visible in Acronis 2016 on any computer or in any software other than Windows. At least on this one computer that is working correctly.
I plugged in USB disk so I can copy the data… it’s not working. Nothing happened.
It displays that I have 3,5TB of free space. I bought 4TB drive. Where is 0,5TB of space?
I could go on with this… but for now I’m thinking on setting it on fire or placing it into a microwave or washing machine, maybe shooting it with a gun or something that would make me happy for a moment.
I don’t see it. This WD idea. Sometimes making things easier doesn’t necessarily make them better.
After 24 hours I don’t see any proper use of this and it makes me cry over my purchase.
