I really want to like my 4TB WD Mycloud, I really do.
It doesn’t seem to work, It doesn’t seem to work for me and it doesnt seem to work for most of us on this user forum.
I haven’t owned it for that long, but one of the things I wanted to do was to create a copy of my 150 GB iPhoto library in a share on the MyCloud drive. I have tired connecting my Macbook directly via an unfettered GB Ethernet connection as well as a directly USB drive attahced to the MyCloud. No matter what, the copy process is brutally slow and it always fails after 5+ hours and only 4GB later. Yet I’ve copied the same150 GB to a USB drive in about 30 min.
Ive tried using SSH terminal to do a direct copy in linux, tried reformating the machine, tried trouble shooting with the WD techs (total failure) etc etc ec - Like many other customers, I have wasted a considerable amount of time trying to make the value proposition of this product come true. I wish I had read this forum before I put my money down.
I wonder are there any options to extract some better value here? Anything I can do to hack this thing and use the drive as plain jane storage?
