USB 3 functionality

Can someone confirm the MyCloud Home functionality available via the usb port please?

Is it possible to use network explorer/file explorer to transfer files both to and from the nas? Or is the functionality more limited than this?
TIA … Greg

Hi @gvm77,

Please refer to the article My Cloud Home: USB Backup and Compatibility:

If further assistance is needed, please open a case with our support team at the following:

Ok, thanks. It sounds like a Windows PC can communicate with a MyCloud via wifi or internet connection, not directly via a usb to usb cable. Can you confirm please?

The reason i am interested in a direct usb connection is to avoid authentication and permission issues that can arise with connections via the network.

Can you confirm please?
TIA … Greg
