This was a mistake putting the new OS on my wdpr4100, the cpu runs at 50 percent constantly, the ram averages 46 percent usage now , the drives are running 4 c° hotter The word nightmare would be more appropriate

Yes the transition sounds a bit rough for some of you.

Anyway OS 5 looks way more capable than what we have with My Cloud Home so called OS 4…

Some of new feature are nice but making the usb a backup a separate app in a browser was dumb that should stay integrated, the needing double the resources to perform the tasks is ridiculous , the media server twonky app does give more usability again the doubled resources is not worth it.Between this and what wd pulled with the Red drives I am done with westerndigital ,great products have turned into garbage

Hi. I just update mine MyCloudEX2Ultra to OS5 version and i don’t see Transmission app on the list. I read changelog before start update to ensure is Transmission is still support. I’m really upset because i often use this app. There is another method to install Tranmission app? Thanks for answear.

You should look into My Cloud OS 5 dedicated subforum.

Many are complaining Transmission is missing. I understand it’s coming back with a future update.

do not update, see my id
