Yes, you can save directly to Shared Public Folders.
From my own personal experience I recommend only creating folders under Public Share if you are going to be copying to them directly. After you make your direct copy folder map a network drive to this folder. Your new mapped network folder will be located near C: & D: drive. You can then add sub-folders to this Mapped Drive that is under the Public Folder.
I had issues if I made folders in the root of my My Cloud™ (same level as Pubic Shared, TimeMachine, User folders) and It messed up the last User Shared folder and placed it under Public Folder. This is why I recommend only putting direct copy folder under Public Shared.
If you are wanting to send files remotely, you could Zip up multiple files in to a single Zip file and then drag that to yoru My Cloud drive using WD’s wd2go interface. Then unzip the files later.
Let us know if you need to do this differently.
