Hi - the WD is a great idea but it does not do what it says on the box. Right now it is a fancy NAS with my MAC backing up using Time Machine and nothing more because… the software on the iPhone does not allow automatic backups of the iPhone - which is probably the only thing I bought it for.
Unless I am missing something really obvious then in order to backup my iPhone I need to sync it with my MAC using iTunes and then backup my MAC using Time Machine. Hardly a user friendly restore option for the next time my wife dunks her iPhone down the crapper… which has hapened twice in the last year - hence me wanting personal, large, automatic, cloud storage to back up all my devices without me having to think beyond setting them up.
And try as I mihgt I can find no way of adding a photo from my iPhone to a shared folder that gets sysnched to the MyCloud. I cannot take a photo and have it automatically sent to MyCloud. All in all a very crappy experience so far - soooooo disappointed.
