I love to scroll. ALOT. But not when I have to scroll through 6 'effing TERABYTES of data to find ONE file without the use of a competent search feature on the WD My Cloud. My information might as well be up in a cloud. A meteorological cloud for all the search capability that the WD My Cloud gives me.
Sure I could learn LINUX and build my own NAS but I don’t have the time or the inclination. I wish Western Digital would find the time and the inclination to develop this feature.
Have people repeatedly asked for a search feature for the remote apps? Yes, see the many Cloud Ideas links at the end of this post.
Can you search for files remotely? Actually yes. One can use the WebDAVMod that would allow one to remotely map their My Cloud in Windows File Explorer and from there one should be able to perform a search (which might be slow) for files on the My Cloud. One can even use a file manager app like ES File Explorer on their mobile device (Android) and remote map their My Cloud using the WebDAVMod and search for files from their Android device.
YES! This is an absolute and urgent need. How can such a basic feature be missing??
And may I add that a sort function (e.g. by date, or file name) is also badly needed. This is only available in the mobile app!
