My Cloud Mirror File Transfers

Newb to the My Cloud world with a quick question…

When I transfer files from my computer to my cloud, why is it that when I try open files in My Cloud I have to download them? Is there a way to make these files readily accessible instead of downloading them first??

Also, when I transfer files from my phone to my cloud it goes into a download folder on my phone. These arent visible on my cloud drive. Why is that and how can I delete them out of the download folder of my cloud phone app.

Any links to My Cloud Mirror 101 would be greatly appreciated as well.


You can open your files without having to download them if you access them while on local network.

What is the process/steps you follow to add files into your unit from your phone? Files in the download folder can be deleted with a file manager app.
