Hi there, Apologies for my lack of IT knowledge but i have a couple of questions regarding my new My Cloud device.
Q1. I am wondering how best to transfer large amounts of data to the My Cloud?
It appears there are maximum upload data tranfer limits if i try and copy the data accross by WIFi which i can appear to set any higher than approx 8 GB (this was originally set to (50MB until someone on this forum gave a helping hand using the following link : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2668751). Anything above this just causes the upload program to hang.
In this situation, what is the best way to transfer approx. 1 TB of data to the My Cloud? Can i connect directly from my PC to the My Cloud and if so, how?
Q2. Can i connect the external USB drive containing all the data i wish to transfer directly to the My Cloud and transfer it from there?
Q3. I have had a few issues where by when i try and connect to the My Cloud using the ‘My Cloud’ or ‘WD Photos’ apps. Sometimes they work and other they are unbarable slow of just dont get past the ‘loading’ screen. Should a reset of the device cure this?
Q4. Is it possible to only select certain file times for back up? For example, i want to back up my music and photos but anm not that fussed about video.
Many thanks for all of your assistance with my queries. I am sure once it has all been set up, the drive will work brilliantly.
