I’ve bought a MyCloud 4Tb since 2 months and I’m very happy with it. Works really fine!
I used my Mycloud as a central home storage place: all user folders (such as 'MyDocuments, Application data, …) has been moved from PC’s and laptops to user specific shares on the MC with limited access for the individual user. Beside, all applications that are portable are also moved to a specific share with read access for all users.
This leads to a high independency of the used PC/laptop. As long as the user uses his user-account he/she always see his/here files and applications on his share(s).
Backup is provided by the use of FreeFileSync (thanks Community for the tip:heart_eyes: ! - I follow the Community since quite a while) on another device.
To avoid unhappiness I would discuss my plan to change the powering of the Mycloud to UPS powering with you. It is my intention to supply my Mycloud with my UPS-system (12V DC) instead of using the net-adapter which delivers also 12V DC. Basically, this should not be a problem but hardware problems possibly comes in when the UPS is charging because at that moment the voltage on the circuit arises up to 14,5V DC (pure DC because of charging by solar cells).
I did this already for my switches and SP-modem/router without any problems but these devices are consuming less power and are, therefore, less sensible to some overpowering.
Does anyone know the acceptable input-voltage range for the Mycloud 4Tb or has experience with a simular case?
Sorry for my English.
