The My Cloud Desktop app (if that is what you are using) has been End of Life since 2016. The following WD Knowledgebase article has more information.

Right now one would have to use the MyCloud.com web portal or use the insecure FTP option to access a remote network My Cloud. For local network access one should be using Windows File Explorer to access the My Cloud.
