Well, I am a bit new in WD Community. As I purchased a new My Cloud 3TB device yesterday I started to configure it and then I saw it hasn’t an ON/OFF button. It is logic since this product is designed to be “always online”. The only way to turn it off I have seen is using the WD QuickView program, but when I turn it OFF it is impossible to turn it ON again. Am I right or wrong? Regarding all these things I’d like to ask two more questions:
- First one: At home we’re used to turn off the router at night. As My Cloud keeps running, but with the router offline, is it harmful for the My Cloud device?
- Second one: If it is harmful, is there an easy way to safely turn on My Cloud at morning and turn it off at night before disconnecting de router?
PD: The only way I have found to turn ON and OFF the device is by plugging and unplugging the power cable, but it is surely a bad practice and over time will harm de device.
Thank you all in advance!
